Brother Rando is a student of Prophecy and one of Jehovah's Witnesses. His interests are directed towards how the time of the end would come about. The earth’s population today is going through a physical, spiritual or emotional tribulation that has been prophesied concerning a time of distress as the earth is about to enter into a cleansing period of removing wickedness by means of God’s Kingdom. (Daniel 12:1) Brother Rando’s discussions are of keen interest to many who await for God's Kingdom. He asserts that his discussions are just that, and not Prophecies, nor does he make the claim to be inspired. His authority is the Bible. He proclaims the year 2034 to be of very high interest to all. Like a GPS, that gives Insight to location, 2034 allows us to gauge where we are in the stream of time according to God’s Will. According to Brother Rando, the Bible carries two thoughts in it’s passages, one is fleshy and the other is spiritual. Jesus Christ warned Peter of thinking fleshy and that this type of thinking is not from God. (Matthew 16:23) As we read (Genesis 2:16-17) the punishment for disobedience was death “in the day”. According to Genesis 5:5, Adam lived 930 years and then he died. Satan, who thinks like a man, got it wrong! (Genesis 3:4-5)
In Brother Rando’s research of the Bible, he found scripture does interpret other scripture. The answer to how long a day was, according to God’s Will was found in (Psalms 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8). This is vital to gaining understanding in how we are to measure time in God’s view. Spiritually and not fleshy or physical. A day in heavens time is a thousands years to us. It’s by this method we can measure time and where we are in the stream of time of the end. In answer Jesus said to them: “Break down this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:19) Was Jesus indicating that he was the Temple of God, God’s Kingdom? And that the temple would in fact be destroyed or broken down? According to God’s Word, the following scripture is the basis for Salvation. “For if you publicly declare that ‘word in your own mouth,’ that Jesus is Lord, and exercise faith in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) In order for John 2:19 and Romans 10:9 to come in line, did Jesus utter a prophecy about God's Kingdom since he stated, “I will raise it up”? IF the basis for salvation is that Jesus is Lord and that God raised him up. We can conclude that Jesus did not raise himself up, but it was God that raised him, since Jesus was dead and conscious of nothing at all. (Ecc 9:5) Jesus prophesied that HE would raise God's Kingdom. Jesus was speaking prophetically of raising the temple of God within the third day of a thousand years. Jesus warned Peter not to think the thoughts of man. (Matthew 16:23) Based on 2 Peter 3:8 if we apply that a physical day is a thousand years, then we are able to determine the time frame to when God’s Kingdom would be raised up by Jesus Christ. Jesus was put to death on Nisan 14, 33CE. The two days would actually represent two thousand years and we come up with the year 2033. Jesus stated,“in three days I will raise it up.” So the third day is upon us in 2034.
Was Jesus Christ speaking in a physical sense, since he just condemned the temple to everlasting destruction at (Matthew 24:2)? Jehovah Witnesses assert that Jesus under inspiration of Holy Spirit was actually prophesying about his spiritual body as the only means to approach his Heavenly Father. (John 14:6) Not the Temple made by hands or his fleshy body as Christendom claims, but his spiritual body, known as the Body of Christ. This would actually be the Collective Representative of God’s Kingdom in how we can approach the One True God JEHOVAH. Brother Rando is not the first to come up with this time frame. In the first part of 1914, the Bible Students known as International Bible Students Association discussed the “time of trouble” on the printed page called The Bible Students Monthly. Early in 1914, an issue of The Bible Students Monthly was issued with the large bold heading “END OF WORLD IN 1914? Some have quoted the large headline of this tract as proof that Russell was expecting the “end of the world” in 1914. However, such neglect the subheading under the larger headline, which states: “NOT THE VIEW OF PASTOR RUSSELL NOR OF I.B.S.A.” International Bible Students Association: "Nevertheless, when viewed from God’s standpoint, we are still “shortly after” 1914. Although Russell himself did not think the time of trouble would be this long, he did allow that it could be. It is possible that the time allotted for this period is 120 years (1914+120=2034), but that these days will be “cut short” some time before they are allowed to reach their end. We do not put this forth as a “prophecy”, nor would we feel anything was wrong if 2034 came and went and nothing had happened as far the full binding of Satan and the destruction of his empire is concerned. All things are in God’s hands."
According to the discussion, 1914 represents the year that the earth would enter into a time of distress and that time limit could very well be 120 years. Which again, brings up the year 2034. The year 1914 is derived by a prophecy of the end of the Gentile times. Brother Rando insists that we should not live by a date, but to use this time to get right with God. Jesus continually pointed that the people who were on the earth when he would raise God’s Temple would be like those people in Noah’s time, taking no note. Where do the 120 years come from? If we read Genesis 6:3, most people think of this scripture in the fleshy sense of man’s lifespan. But could there be a spiritual meaning, giving those with Insight a divine warning? The Bible does say, “make secret the words and seal up the book, until the time of [the] end.” (Daniel 12:4) Could it be, this world has entered into it’s Last Days in 1914? (2 Timothy 3:1-5) Yet there is another scripture that helps us measure the time. In Ecclesiastes 6:6 it reads, “Even supposing that he has lived a thousand years twice over and yet he has not seen what is good, is it not to just one place that everyone is going?” The chapter talks about vanity and that if a person actually lived two thousand years without God’s Kingdom we are all heading to the same place. Since death was the punishment, we would need God’s Kingdom to conquer death, the place we all are heading. A thousand years twice over is two thousand years. Simple math from the year 33 CE, again brings us to the time of 2033, when the second thousand years has been brought to it’s finish. Could Christ Millennial reign be from 2034 to 3034? We don’t know. Jesus stated, he would raise God’s Temple in the third day, so we can expect God's Kingdom to be fully operating sometime between the years 2034 and 3034. However, Jesus Christ was risen first thing on the very morning in the third day. Most Bible readers are in agreement that Christ does rule for a thousand years. (Revelation 20:6)
Armageddon is the actual cleansing of the earth from all wickedness. If in the literal sense, it would consist of angels coming down from heaven to bring death to all those rejecting the Kingdom of God. But if it is spiritual, Armageddon could very will take place without the knowledge that it is actually occurring. If this is the case, then Armageddon would commence without the knowledge that the wicked are simply dying off. There seems to be evidence in scripture to how God destroyed the forefather’s in the wilderness. They died off in the wilderness at the hand of the destroyer without knowing of such, as Paul eloquently explains in 1 Corinthians 10:1-10. If Armageddon is an invisible act of removing wickedness from the earth, it is to be expected that 2034 will be met with severe and vile opposition. Those claiming to be of “Christian” faiths may very will deliver one another up to death. “Then people will deliver YOU up to tribulation and will kill YOU, and YOU will be objects of hatred by all the nations on account of my name. Then, also, many will be stumbled and will betray one another and will hate one another.” (Matthew 24:9-10) Could this be the unexpected Armageddon, the Great Tribulation? Could the earth’s population be so stirred up to a frenzy, that people start killing one another for the simple fear of this dreaded day for the wicked? Can it be a self-imposed prophecy? If we apply the spiritual understanding to Armageddon, then all it is that the wicked die off while the “ransom sacrifice” of Jesus Christ would be extended to those who know God and Obey the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ. That would be Armageddon, it would actually mean Salvation for the upright ones in God’s eyes. These people are the ones called out of the nations by God for his own name. (Acts 15:14) In that case, then Armageddon would be a new beginning for those who know God and Obey the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ and Deuteronomy 28:9-10 would follow.
During Jesus earthly ministry, he gave witness to the Kingdom of the Heavens. But as he was dying, an evildoer asked Jesus to remember him. Jesus did not mention heaven, but a paradise. Could the Garden of Eden be restored? According to the prophet Isaiah, he preached, “The wolf and the lamb themselves will feed as one, and the lion will eat straw just like the bull;” (Isaiah 65:25) This evildoer can expect a Resurrection in a peaceful earth of paradise. Jesus never spoke about a rapture, but taught, “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life;” (John 11:25) Notice the Biblical teaching: “hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.”(Rev 20:13)
If true, would not this be "Good News" that Christ would resurrect those in God's memory to be with those who know God and Obey the good news of Jesus Christ? “And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14) The Bible gives "a specific condition" for these events and provides overwhelming evidence to show that we are living in “the last days” of this troubled world. (Daniel 12:1, Rev 12:7-9, 2 Timothy 3:1-5)
"He will revive us after two days. On the third day he will raise us up, And we will live before him. We will know, we will earnestly seek to know Jehovah. His going out is as certain as the dawn; He will come to us like a pouring rain, Like a spring rain that saturates the earth." (Hosea 6:2-3) Jesus Christ has been working on building the foundation of God's Heavenly Temple, the New Jerusalem since Pentecost 33 CE, so it is logical that the "sealing" of the chosen ones, the 144,000 would be completed by Pentecost 2033 CE. With each passing memorial, partaking will be less likely as we approach 144,000 Congregations. The memorial itself will continue, but the partaking would eventually cease. It's this "Sealing Event" that brings on the Great Tribulation, not the earthly events of distress! "Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until after we have sealed the slaves of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of those who were sealed, 144,000" (Rev 7:3-4) The time left is Reduced!
Brothers and Sisters, as 2034 comes and goes, continue walking in faith so that the Day of Jehovah doesn't come upon on you as a snare. For the unfaithful cannot stand before the son of man. Soon, all wickedness will be removed from the earth so that the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ can be worshiped without demonic opposition and JEHOVAH'S name will be vindicated WORLDWIDE. Jesus prayed, "Our Father hallowed be your Name". Jehovah's Witnesses are the only true Christians going door to door "hallowing the Father's Name" by making it known. "Look! I am standing at the door and knocking." (Rev 3:20) How does (Psalms 83:18) read in your Bible?
Take Care and Philia! (To the end. Matthew 24:13) Brother Rando
The Last Days that began in 1914 are now coming to their end. When Armageddon is about to begin, the son of man's presence is finally revealed to wicked mankind, and "all the peoples of the earth will have to see that Jehovah's name has been called upon you, and they will indeed be afraid of you." (Deut 28:10)
The gathering of a people out of all the nations for God's Name is now coming to its completion, so that the men who remain may earnestly seek Jehovah, together with people of all the nations, people who are called by my name, says Jehovah, who is doing these things, (Acts 15:14,17)
"then the sign of the Son of man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will beat themselves in lamentation" (Matthew 24:30)
"all the tribes of the earth will beat themselves in grief because of him. Yes, Amen." (Rev 1:7)
