Introduction to HIStory, Our Future
I am working on a presentation of this information in chronological order walking through history, into the future according to Bible prophecy and then to modern times to report on developments on the path leading to where the Bible says we will go based on news of the day. I don’t claim to have all the answers, I’m just watching.
This study shows how God’s glory is declared through the understanding of Bible prophecy. That is the goal of this group of studies, to awaken the end-time bride of Christ to the understanding of the times in which we live. Who else can tell the end from the beginning? Only the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
1 Thessalonians 5:14-28
Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. Brethren, pray for us. Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss. I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
1 Corinthians 14:1-5
Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. I would that ye all spake with tongues but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.
2 Peter 1:19-21
We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
The Lord always does things in accordance with His Word, which never changes. While not every detail of history is apparent, there is a framework that revolves around God’s chosen people, Israel. As we will see, there is a prophecy in scripture that is yet unfulfilled, but I believe you will see is in the process of being fulfilled right now. So while not every detail is readily apparent, we know God’s way from His Word and so our actions whether in accordance with His Word or contrary to it, will produce an expected result because God has made known the benefits and consequences of our actions whether aligned with or against His Word respectively.
1 Corinthians 14:29-33
Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. Matthew 7:13-23 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.Matthew 24:36-44, Mark 13:32-37, Luke 12:16-40, Luke 21:34-36, Hebrews 9:28
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Hello my friends and fellow watchmen! I just did some preliminary timelines from the information I’m putting together for the HIStory, Our Future information and I was compelled to share what I’ve found so far with you. This study covers known history and Bible prophecies that are fulfilled from the destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon all the way up to today. I’m putting this all together here on this website through the links at the top of the page to present the details and Biblical explanation and to clarify Bible prophecy. It will be best if you start from the first one listed, Ezekiel’s 430 days, and move to the last one for further Bible studies that add to the understanding of the big picture.This study is meant to present the information I’ve found in my research from both history and Bible prophecy regarding the center of prophecy, Yeshua (Jesus) the Christ. Revelation 19:10 It is my honor to be sharing my study in hopes of sharing the understanding God has given me from His Word and the simultaneous confidence, faith, and peace in the coming turmoil and feeling closer to understanding God’s plan. I hope that this most of all leads to you reading the Word of God personally and taking it for truth, bringing you to a closer relationship with your Creator, Yeshua.
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.
Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
I truly believe the information contained in this study are pearls of wisdom from the Lord for His bride, the church as given to His servants the prophets who wrote as the Spirit led them the Bible we now have today. There’s no special knowledge needed, just faith in the Word of God. What we know from scripture doesn’t take any private interpretation. We need to rely on the Bible alone to interpret itself. The Holy Spirit wrote it over thousands of years through the prophets and gave us all the interpretations within the text of scripture. Some are asleep still and don’t realize how short the time is. I pray this study will glorify God and open many eyes to the reality and nearness of the events written thousands of years ago by men led by God through His Holy Spirit. 1 Peter 1:16-21 I pray also that it will bring the reality of scripture to light and encourage further personal study with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Fulfilled prophecy, in my opinion, is one of the best tools to bring the reality and precision of Bible prophecy to life. The Word of God is alive. We are told loud and clear that we should understand God’s plan. He went to the trouble to spell it out for us so it must be important. 80% of the Bible is prophecy and it is all written about Christ. Unbelievers are not going to expect what is coming, but believers are supposed to understand and be in the light about it so that it doesn’t take us like thieves because those who aren’t in darkness shouldn’t be surprised by anything that happens. That means an intimate knowledge of the future through the lens of scripture. See the Importance of Watching.
What this study will show is how the judgment against Israel as given to Ezekiel in Ezekiel 4 marks exactly 2520 years from the first and third sieges of Jerusalem by Babylon to Israel becoming a nation and recapturing Jerusalem respectively. In the interest of honesty, we don’t know the exact days of the first and third sieges, but we know the years, and while we don’t know the exact day, the fact that the years line up is pretty amazing alone. When you study the other prophecies that were fulfilled to the day as well and see them all lined up in history, each lining up to the day with each other leading right to October 5, 2005, I believe the truth of God’s precision on the Bible will resonate with your spirit.
What this means is that we have a possible connection of June 7, 1967 which marks the recapture of Jerusalem with the 14,000 days. What’s more is that this would make perfect sense since Israel is God’s timepiece and for the past 2,000 years they have had judgments against them which ended on two very key days, the last of which marked the first time Israel controlled Jerusalem since 70AD. However, in unbelief and lack of faith in God’s promise that He would protect them and they would no more be removed from their land, Israel gave up control of the holiest place on earth to the Gentiles. There are two previous Biblical examples of this precise 14,000 day periods, that the waiting of one generation is because of a lack of faith. In the wilderness wanderings, they didn’t believe they could defeat the giants, so that generation wandered the wilderness for 14,000 days and their children entered the Promised Land. Then on April 6, 32AD at the triumphal entry, Christ wept over Jerusalem exactly 173,880 days after Artaxerxes Longimanus gave the order to Nehemiah to rebuild the streets and walls, just like Gabriel told Daniel.
This brings me to Herb’s research and January 1, 2007. As you may know, the 7-year European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) started on January 1, 2007. If you haven’t read Recommendation 666, I recommend you do, it’s free online! I put the ENP in the chart because I believe it may be the covenant with many of Daniel 9:27, a confirmation of a previous 1995 agreement (Barcelona Conference/Euro-Med) between Israel and Europe (many). I’m still trying to grasp all the politics; Herb’s the guy to go to for those details! I just finished these two preliminary charts which show events on the timeline of history and the near future. My friends and fellow watchmen, I believe this lends credence and great detail to God’s plan. And it comes from scripture! That’s then applied to events in history and the stars, which were created for signs in the heavens Genesis 1:14, echo back their confirmation that these events are not just coincidental. This gives great clarity to just how true God’s Word is and how precise. I believe this information is the fulfillment of this promise to them that love Him and love His coming with great anticipation.
Given the exact day prophecies of Daniel and Revelation, we have a framework of exact days between main events of the 70th week. If Rosh Hashanah was truly the awakening blast that started the 70th week of Daniel, then we can expect to meet Christ in the early part of 2009! (Please note this is neither labeling the day nor the hour.) Keep watching!!!
There’s lots to understand and little time before the end. I expect a false peace to arrive in the Middle East any time now. I believe Javier Solana will bring it about primarily, but the EU in general. Javier Solana, as the Secretary-General of the EU, will naturally be involved. Then I believe Russia, Turkey, Iran, and several other Islamic nations will attack Israel. God will destroy them in the mountains of Israel with fire and brimstone from heaven. Ezekiel 38,39 From that point, Israel will recognize the God of their fathers and return to the old ways, rebuilding the temple to begin the daily sacrifice. Ultimately, this will lead to the abomination of desolation and that point is when Satan is cast to the earth and all hell breaks loose.
The news is leading to these events even now. The bride of Christ needs to wake from her slumber and trim her lamps, relying on the Holy Spirit. Matthew 25:1-13 That is my hope with the book, that God will be glorified in His perfect Word. It truly is amazing what detail is in God’s Word! If you would like to join me in watching, you can sign up for the Watchman Newsletter by clicking here.Many people say, “We can’t know the details of the future or really come to agreement on Bible prophecy because everyone has their own view and it’s all debatable.” I hope to dispel this rumor with the Holy Bible as the foundation. I believe this idea has come about because of frustration in not understanding the scriptures, which has a lot to do with the fact that until 1948, Bible prophecy was on hold as far as our being able to understand it’s intricacies. And since 1948, many people have put forth theories and ideas that failed in one or more aspects to hold true to reality.
Today, I wish to show you the scriptures which lay out our future in great detail, greater than most ever believed possible, but our God is a God of the impossible becoming possible. His Word has always held the same information, it’s just a matter of taking it literally and interpreting scripture within scripture itself. We as the body of Christ are to be united, this one Book is that uniting principle, but man’s personal interpretation has caused division in the body and created hundreds of off-shoots through history. Many stick to the basic foundation, but add or take away too much. The Bible has EVERYTHING we need to understand. History clarifies and verifies what’s in scripture and when put them together, even lays out the future in great detail!
May God bless your study of His Word. Remember to develop your personal relationship with Christ, your bridegroom and spread His love to all those around you. You carry a candle with His light, let it shine and He will direct your path.

- 14,000 Days research – Found through Charlie at Wonderful1.com who references John Zachary who came up with this conclusion on 14,000-day periods other than the one in the Holy Bible. He found these two patterns in 1986 while I was still serving our county in Japan and long before I met Christ. His calculation from Jesus until the destruction of Jerusalem aided me significantly. However, he was lacking the connection to the Old Testament. You can read Mr. Zachary’s analysis at http://www.harvardhouse.com/prophetictech/new/index.htm
- EU’s ENP and the Current Head, Javier Solana – Herb L. Peters at www.fulfilledprophecy.com has been watching European politics for over a decade. Author of Recommendation 666. I would recommend reading his book to fully understand the implications of current world politics and the EU. It will add much understanding and reality to what you read in this study of primarily Bible prophecy.

- The Bible studies on the Watchman Bible Study website are from my research. I’ve tried to remove any previous pre-conceived notions to read the Word literally myself and interpret symbology from within the text of scripture itself so that my own biases do not enter into the Word to add or take away from it. My perspective changes around the solid foundation of the Word of God. I’ve had to shift my views before, and I’m more than willing to do so again if I find I’m not in line with the Bible. I encourage all who read this to hold to Acts 17:11 while asking the guidance of the Holy Spirit who will bring all these things to remembrance.
