Col. Flagg wrote:Theoretically, the year 2000-3000 should be the millennium, however, we have been told that the 6th and 7th seals overlap and that Christ's return occurs after the 6th seal is closed but before the 7th is opened. We're in that time period now. I like to refer to it as the half hour of silence we are told about (silence in heaven for the space of a half hour), which equates to approximately 21 years (if you go by the 1,000 years to us is 1 day to the Lord analogy). I'm not 100% sure if that's the case or not, but if it is, then sometime between 2021 and 2022 would be the opening of the 7th seal, but Christ returns before that, meaning we could be looking at his return within the next 12-13 years.
1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

It talks about how Jesus is the one who opens the seal and wouldnt be doing that wheile he was an infant and that is part of the reason there is the story about when he was 11 (in his twelfth year) knowing who he is and going into his fathers house to teach. This makes perfect sense to me. Also it talks about the silence in the heavens being that the preparation time for the destroying angels and return of Christ is over and the destruction begins. Looks like Cleon Skousen agrees with that, and pretty much all the terrible things will coincide with the silence in the heavens. Again this makes sense to me.

I hope so. I am so sick and tired of the Babylon.Will
In a sense the new temple just outside of Independence may be part of the New Jerusalem.

There is obviously so much left to do on the calendar!. Think of what has to happen just to get us back to Independence, let alone 10 tribes going back to Israel, the temple in Jerusalem, etc.
You your Obama thing is pretty fitting. Pharoah was decent of cain I think, so Obama seems to be. Interesting parallels could be? I know Obama's followers refer to him as "the one" and that has some egyptian parallels. It would be cool for Moses to come and lead us back to the promised land like in Exodus. Cool! a modern day exodus back to Mo. Love it!
