Today is January 4, 2020 – the first study of this year
January -- Janus's month
Middle English Januarie
Latin Januarius "of Janus"
Latin Janu(s) "Janus" + -arius "ary (pertaining to)"
Latin Januarius mensis "month of Janus"
Janus is the Roman god of gates and doorways, depicted with two faces looking in opposite directions. His festival month is January. Januarius had 29 days, until Julius when it became 31 days long.
By the way, 2020 is in the new decade
We acknowledge Yehovah’s calendar: We are now in the tenth month, Teveth טֵבֵת – day 8
Esth.2  So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.
Part of Dec. 2019 and Jan. 2020

Occupy till He comes
Where are we in “Time”?
As far as we can tell, the first part of scripture, the TaNaKh was approximately 4000 years.
Roman time Dating - the year 1:
The 1st century
Moving forward, events that we are concerned with:
The Gospels: Yeshua’s birth, life, ministry, death and resurrection.
Then the Acts of the Apostles, the letters, and some bible disciples might have lasted until…?
Here are some thoughts:
In the Bible we have today, there is No mention of the second Temple being destroyed.
The second temple was destroyed in approximately 70 AD – by Roman Emperor Titus
****We do not know the date when John was banished to Patmos.
Many histories I see on the net state John’s events occurred in the 90s, the first century, by the Roman Emperor Domitian, who was right after Titus, they say.
Here is some confusion - Some historians and scholars claim that John died while on Patmos and others say that he was freed from the island before his death.
****No one is certain when or where John died
We are left with today:
There are too many varying histories on the net.
Too much time has passed.
So many pseudo Christian biases to deal with.
All we really know is - Here is John:
Patmos – info from a few concordances: a rugged and bare island - an islet in the Mediterranean
Even though the book of Revelation seems separate from all the letters, still in the book of Revelation, there was No mention of the second Temple being destroyed.
We read in Rev. 1
Moving forward again:
We remember that on October 13, 2004 that in Tiberias, the launching of a Sanhedrin, (again was created) the highest Jewish-legal tribunal in the Land of Israel.
Moving forward again: The 21 century
Now it is 2020
At this point, here are some things to consider:
No new third Temple
No world peace
No world ruler (man of sin – anti-Messiah)
Simply, no one world anything
At this point, all we can do is look at Future events.
We shall occupy till He, Messiah comes
Rev.2  But that which ye have already hold fast till I, Yeshua come.
John was told a similar thing just like Daniel: Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not
 And I saw another mighty
angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his
head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
Matt.13  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the
sea, and gathered of every kind:
 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
 And Yeshua went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
 And Yeshua said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and
what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world?
 And Yeshua answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Messiah; and shall deceive many.
 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
 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:)
Let’s read Daniel:
At this point: the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end
Daniel was told - O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end
 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
***  But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.
 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half;
and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
 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.
 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
Back to Matt. 24
 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day:
 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Messiah, or there; believe it not.
 For there shall arise false Messiahs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
 Behold, I have told you before.
 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
 The lord of that servant
shall come in a day when he looketh not for him,
and in an hour that he is not aware of,
 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
All this is still to come
 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Messiah is at hand.
 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.  Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
 Remember ye
not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord Yeshua shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:
 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
 Now our Lord Yeshua
the Messiah himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath
given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
In closing at this point:
Remember: Daniel was told; the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end - shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end.
It seems to figure, we are not at the time of the end.
Many events still have to occur. If God wants us to know any of this, He will tell us, not the internet.
Good advice for the present: Stand fast, and hold the traditions (in Torah / TaNaK) which you have been taught. Again I say, all we can do is “occupy till He comes”!
