Prophetic Perspectives, 2008-2015 by Jim Bramlett
"Prophetic Perspectives, 2008-2015"

Bible prophecy is a compelling subject. History,
current events, and the Bible all shout to any discerning person that we are
standing on the edge of time and eternity. No subject could be more
captivating. But how many are listening? Most people are
For many years I have been reading different ideas and
interpretations about Bible prophecy, from many very bright people, often with
intriguing and complex scenarios and timetables, but none of which so far have
proved entirely correct. But I thank God for all these diligent
When a new idea or revelation comes along, I take note,
because I am interested in the subject. I take note but I do not take it
too seriously because of past failures.
But when a second person or source independently comes
along with the same revelation, I take special note.
And when a third person or source independently comes along
with the same thing, I begin to really take it seriously.
That has happened not three but at least five times
concerning the year 2015! I know of five independent,
respectable sources that say 2015 may see the Second Coming of Jesus
Christ. Draw your own conclusions about possible intervening events
between tomorrow and then.
1. The year 2015 is the year of rare lunar
and solar eclipses, with "blood red moons" and the "sun turning to darkness"
that fall on Jewish feast days described by Pastor Mark Biltz. He discovered
these future eclipses on the NASA Web site, and he believes these eclipses are
related to the signs of the Second Coming in Joel 3 and Matthew 24. See
Perry mentions Pastor Biltz's discoveries, and also says that in 2012, for the first time in 26,000 years, the sun will be aligned with the center of our Milky Way galaxy, creating effects on the earth.
3. The year 2015 is pointed to by
David Flynn, author of the popular book, Temple at the Center of
Time. From my understanding of his work, he believes that 2012 will
be the middle of the final seven-year Tribulation. He comes to this conclusion
from observing astronomical patterns and comparing them with the book of
Revelation. For two absolutely fascinating one-hour interviews with
David Flynn, go to
4. Sir Isaac Newton lived 300 years
ago (1642-1727), and was one of the greatest geniuses in all history, perhaps
the greatest. He is called the "father of modern science" and the "father of
the industrial revolution." He discovered many scientific laws. God chose
Isaac Newton to impart many of His deepest secrets.
Newton was also a Bible scholar who translated directly from the Hebrew and Greek. He was unusually drawn to the prophet Daniel, which he began studying at age 12 and continued until he died at age 85. In fact, The Columbia History of the World, a secular history book, remarks, "At the end of his days he spent more time studying and writing about the prophecies in the Book of Daniel than he did in charting the heavens."
For years I have been intrigued with Newton's
interpretation of Daniel 9:25 and the 62 weeks and 7 weeks (62 X 7 = 434
years, and 7 X 7 = 49 years), counted "from the going forth of the command to
restore and build Jerusalem." In his commentary on Daniel, a copy of
which I have, Newton wrote that the interpretation of those 69 weeks is
usually incorrect, violating the Hebrew language. He said the two
numbers should not be added together as most scholars do, but the 434 years
refer to Messiah's first coming (which he demonstrated)
The start date for counting has been controversial.
Many thought the 49-year-count would be the date of Israel's rebirth on May
14, 1948, but, alas, that did not work out. Other dates were tried
unsuccessfully. But what if the count begins on one of the two most
historical dates in Jewish history, the date in the miraculous Six-Day War
when Israel captured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount: June 7, 1967?
Assume the 49-year count (49 Jewish years X 360 days =
17,640 days), does start on June 7, 1967. Using a date-counter Web site
If the above is true about 2015, what about the
preceding seven years and things we know must happen before the Second
5. Here is a scenario according to
Pastor F.M. Riley. Pastor Riley is very specific and near-time. As
many readers know, Riley is not known to be timid or without conviction.
He says "the Lord is going to rapture His people to glory on the last
day of Tabernacles, October 20, 2008. The (seven-year) Tribulation
period is going to begin the same day, starting a 220-day count to the eve of
Pentecost on May 28, 2009, at which time the Tribulation Temple will be
dedicated and the daily sacrifices will begin." WHOA!
Can anyone hear the sound of a celestial trumpet warming
up? Did anyone just hear the penny drop?

reveal such information to his people, please read my brief essay, "Can We
