End of the age – 2018?

I want to share with you a hypothesis by Ted Montgomery. As he is not dogmatic but skeptical if this hypothesis is correct, please do not criticize but rather read and pray for wisdom. Please read it by following the provided hyperlink and feel free to comment here.

 End of the Age: 2018?

  1. Thanks Vic,
    That’s an interesting article. I remember back in 2008 speaking to Ted via emails which i still have regarding the EU, Maybe what he is saying and what i just read is connected in some way.
    ironically check this one out on shoebat..
    Here is a bit of the article:

    Erdogan is hailed, not only as “prophet” or “healer” only, but as one who can change the laws of the universe: “Spring has come to Sanliurfa. Both nature and history are rising up to greet our prime minister,” says Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek on Erdogan’s visit to the southeastern province of Sanliurfa on March 9th. Yet the Finance Minister did not face any sanctions from Erdogan for declaration of divinity and neither did AKP lawmaker Fevai Aslan who on January 16th when he said: “Erdogan is a leader who gathers all of Allah’s qualities in himself”. Neither did the Deputy Health Minister Agah Kafkas was reprimanded when on May 19, 2013 he said: “To do what Erdogan does is sunna”. “Sunna” which the Deputy Health Minister was referring to is the obedience to Muhammad. In other words, to obey Erdogan is to obey the Prophet himself! And neither was AKP lawmaker Huseyin Sahin on July 20, 2011 was reprimanded by Erdogan for saying: “Believe me, even touching our prime minister is worship to me.”


    Whether people like it or not there is a lot of people now calling Recap Tayyip Erdogan divine or God. He even is proclaiming himself divine.

    Facts about turkey: They have the 2nd largest army in the EU other than Russia. They have the 2nd largest army in NATO next to the US and he wants to revive the ottoman empire which is has openly stated many times which will give him the largest army on earth. Which by the way he said that’s what he wants.
    Turkey is part of the old roman empire (eastern part). So reviving the ottoman empire which was wounded? after WW1 is reviving? Well looks like it is.
    Put it this way, He is sounding much more Antichrist than anyone in the EU is currently.


  2. Sorry for the few posts but may be relevant 🙂

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has built a new 1,000 room, 3.1 million square foot palace for himself that cost the Turkish government $615 million dollars! President Erdogan’s new palace is the most expensive palace in the world! It is a palace worthy of biblical mention.

    As you might expect Turkish citizens as well as Turkish leaders have protested the costliness of Erdogan’s new palace. Erdogan responded by saying, “No one can prevent the completion of this building. If they are powerful enough, let them come and demolish it.”

    The palace is known as the “White Palace” and sits upon a hilltop overlooking Turkey’s capital city of Ankara. The White Palace is bigger than the Whitehouse. It is bigger than the Kremlin. It is bigger than the palace of Versailles. This is where President Erdogan now lives. Inside his new home President Erdogan often has Turkish soldiers dress in period correct armor of Ottoman Empire era military. Take a look for yourself in this article on Yahoo news; Spear-carriers and chainmail warriors: Erdogan’s palace welcome. http://news.yahoo.com/spear-carriers-chainmail-warriors-erd…

    In February 2015 Erdogan announced that he will rename the “White Palace” as the “Presidential Kulliye”. A kulliye is the surrounding grounds of a mosque that house support services for the mosque such as kitchens and guest quarters. The new name gives the presidential home religious significance. President Erdogan says that the palace symbolizes a resurgent Turkey. What he means to say is, “The palace is the headquarters of a revived Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire”. He has already publicly declared his intentions to create a new Turkish led Islamic Union.


  3. will comment after the weekend…..swapmeet prep being done for this weekend. very interesting stuff with very close alignment to what I’ve been suggesting in several ways basically.

  4. it looks to me like every issue on every table is kicking in to high gear. what used to be just about every year then every few months to now every week some big something happening on the world stage. that’s interesting about erdogan. the “players” are playing their positions and it is the Lord moving them on His timeline. the Lord is at hand.


  5. Guys….not to be critical, as Vic Wickus has suggested. But God is not mocked, nor is He a Liar. No man knows the day or the hour period. We must remember that.

    Not to bad mouth Ted – but there is certainly one thing in common about ALL those who put forth dates…..and that is the very FACT that ALL who have put forth, and/or have mentioned anything close to a date (s) or sequence of time (s) – whether or not it be surrounding celestial events; (Blood Moons) or the whole Islamic Paradigm aspect of Prophecy – they ALL have a single common denominator; and that is they ALL have been 100% WRONG.

    We all eagerly await the Return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – but we must not be either deceived or fooling ourselves that someone has it all figured out. No matter how logical, or reasonable it may appear or sound.

    My heart goes out to Ted, because he has given us a view that is definitely well thought of, and is “out of the proverbial box” – I truly admire that sort of thinking. I just warn that we not get so hyped up on ANY Theory – as I have known a few good men and women that have suffered TREMENDOUSLY by doing so.

    God Bless,



  6. As said in the OP Tony, Ted is just as sceptical as you are. He is not trying to set dates and if this Easter weekend pass without anything important happening, this hypothesis is flawed.

    I found it interesting that if there is still any life in the original 2007 to 2013 ENP (date setting?), then this 5 year gap theory will explain lots.

    And yes, no one knows the day and hour, but I believe that as Jesus fulfilled the 4 feasts, He will fulfill the last 3 to the letter. So it is safe to say that He will return on Yom Kippur just as He was crucified on Passover. But we do not know the year.


  7. Beautifully said Vic 🙂

    I appreciate Ted . His humility and genuine Christliness oozes from his writings. It shows 🙂

    5 year gap ? I’m praying on that as well Vic and pondering if this was the ” SPACE ” that was given to the 5 unwise virgins to repent ?

    It seems to me that the Lord has closed the door shut.

    Luke 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

    Many of us that’ve been warning in tearful anguish for years have been called to STOP tolerating covering , protecting and pitying those that insist on Christianizing paganism and whom have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness. – 2 Peter 2:15.

    This must be one of the most terrifying verses in the bible as we ask ourselves , ” who am I tolerating “?

    Rev 2
    Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

    And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

    Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

    And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

    Isaiah 26:20-21

    Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

    For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.


  8. i think pastor brian roberts nails over at his blog about passover this year. from here on out it is an all out on the prophecy scene. these things are way to big to downplay or ignore. israel is only more emboldened as the world systems hate for her is about to go ballistic.


  9. Researching more and more it seems from what i have read so far that any peace in the middle east won’t happen unless Turkey is involved.

    This is a good article from some of the history with Turkey and Israel from 2006 to 2014 and how ironic that Erdogan has been involved the whole time. http://www.globalresearch.ca/triple-alliance-the-us-turkey-israel-and-the-war-on-lebanon/2906

    What is the significance of this verse and Turkey? Which is where Pergamum is..
    “To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: ‘I know your works, and where you dwell… where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to my name, and did not deny my faith even in the days in which Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.'” Revelation 2:12
    Will the seat of Satan be in Turkey? or the EU? That is still the big question as neither are guaranteed right now and there is no 100% evidence in the bible that clearly says one or the other since both the EU and Turkey are part of the original Roman Empire.


  10. Andre’ you said ” .but…..sunday’s coming!”

    Would you care to expound on that ?

    You mean ” tomorrow’s ” Sunday ?


  11. hi hisown 🙂 i meant this sunday–resurrection sunday. i posted the video of those sweet little boys singing about Jesus–up from the grave He arose!!!!! no matter how bad the news is in the world we have a Risen Lord who reigns above all 🙂 . and He fills us with joy and gladness! in the world you shall have tribulation Jesus said…..and He gives us His peace in the midst of it all for He said: be of good cheer, I have overcome the world! john 16:33. Jesus is LORD and we who trust him and live by faith in the Holy Son of God are so blessed to live Forgiven and have our names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life……because He lives ❤


  12. If 2018 will be the year of the End of the Age, then the 7-year Tribulation Period would have begun in 2011, and precisely at the 3 1/2 -year point, which would have been sometime in 2014, the Antichrist would have entered the Third Temple and declared himself God. This did not happen. Therefore, the End of the Age will not be in 2018.

    The stages are being set now for all these events to take place. Trust God to lead us through to a safe place. Pray that you will be counted worthy to escape those things which are to come.


  13. The article from Ted was about a 5 year gap since the mid point of the European neighborhood policy then the last 3.5 years starts sometime now. So really the AC should be walking into the temple anytime. The bible doesn’t specify what temple. Could be the temple mount in Israel.. like the dome of the rock or even the Hagia Sophia in Turkey or as some people think maybe even the Vatican. Dome of the Rock currently is probably the most likely place i suppose.
    What if the Hagia Sophia was the place the antichrist declares himself as god as Thessalonians doesn’t actually specify that:

    “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 oppose and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” (II Thessalonians 2:4)

    Then most Christians will miss the event and will still be waiting while the 3.5 years might have begun, I personally think Teds theory could be right but the dates might be wrong.

    Here is a bit of an article i read from Shoebat a while back.. He really does have some good points. I have been following prophecy for most of my life and i cant deny his theory as well as people like Ted, And others also that post stuff here like Baldy with the ENPI theory. Have to look at the options which will keep our bases covered 🙂

    Thessalonians does not speak of the Temple being in Jerusalem. But this does not negate that it could be in Jerusalem since Revelation speaks of measuring the altar and that the Gentiles would tread foot in Jerusalem for 42 months …

    But Isaiah 14 holds a key. While most brush through the verses in Isaiah 14 by doing selective reading without focusing on every word, verse 13 says:

    “I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north.”

    What is this “mount of the congregation”?

    This declaration is not regarding Lucifer in his angelic stage, but Antichrist “is this the man that made the earth tremble” (v.17) and is said to rule from Pergamum (Revelation 2:12-13) which Christ proclaimed would be the future seat of Satan (Antichrist). This “mount of the congregation” is on the sides of the northern lands in Asia Minor—Turkey. It is in Turkey that the Seven Churches and the Seven Lamp stands were and this is no small issue to ignore.

    Others see this “mount of the congregation” as the temple in Jerusalem. This is not without merit: “… the joy of the whole earth, in mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.”

  14. Hi Andre’

    I just loved that little heart! How did you do that ?

    Passover fell on the same day as pagan Ishtar this year and was wondering . If Christ was in the grave { ministering } for three days, would today not be the resurrection ?

    Peter you said ” “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 oppose and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” (II Thessalonians 2:4)”

    That’s it exactly!

    Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2 : 5

    “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God ”

    I Corinthians 3:16

    Acts 17: 24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

    The spirit of AC already sits in the heart of many. Remember we ARE the temple – the Naos.

    What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
    — 1 Corinthians 6:19,20

    Then you said ,

    “Then most Christians will miss the event and will still be waiting while the 3.5 years might have begun, ”

    Exactly ! It’s called the strong delusion 😦


  15. Am reviewing this and will get back to you on any thoughts. Thank you for taking time to put this together. Lord bless


  16. I’ve been away for some time eh.
    I’ve not been keeping up with everything that’s going on recently.

    But speaking of falling away, have you all heard of the “common word agreement”?


  17. James welcome back!!! 🙂

    Now that is pretty scary and fits so well into the AC spirit’s agenda that’s risen up in almost every church denomination . Thank-you for posting that ! Wow does it ever answer some pretty serious questions.

    James are you from Canada ? The “eh” comment made me laugh. I’m not Canadian but the Lord brought me here. Love it !


  18. Vic Wickus…….

    You stated this:

    “And yes, no one knows the day and hour, but I believe that as Jesus fulfilled the 4 feasts, He will fulfill the last 3 to the letter. So it is safe to say that He will return on Yom Kippur just as He was crucified on Passover. But we do not know the year.”

    Again Vic Wickus……..my dear Brother in Christ…….

    It is NOT safe to say that He will Return on Yom Kippur…… WE DON’T KNOW.

    Peace to you and your Ministry!


  19. Hi Hisown 🙂 , yes I was amazed when I read it…is this a big sign of the great apostacy? If so that comes (immediately?) before….
    Ha! No I’m British, my wife’s Canadian though, we’re visiting this Summer – Toronto area.
    I never say “eh”…nor does she…weird eh?


  20. Hmm, though I’ve been thinking on the apostasy and it may be that the event itself triggers the AC being revealed. The US looks very close to collapse in every element of its national life, spiritual, economic at home and abroad. Spiritual falling being mirrored by physical.

    Anyone notice the day of the collar eclipse, 20th March, the UK led the world away from the US Bretton Woods Institutions and into China’s new AIIB?
    I’ve just learnt that Israel also followed 😦


  21. “The US looks very close to collapse in every element of its national life, spiritual, economic at home and abroad. Spiritual falling being mirrored by physical”
    hello james! good to see you here again! maybe you are aware or perhaps not but the pope is to visit the u.s. in sept. he is the one who will help bring the falling away to it’s apex don’t you think? he is heading up a world class ecumenical movement. that’s ok. that is removing the dross. they are lovers of this world and have no part in Jesus but of “another gospel another jesus”. those who will not participate are the True church who will not sell out their faith in Jesus Alone and will be the set up for all out persecution. so be it. those holding the Truth in unrighteousness will see the Wrath of God revealed. but those who stand fast will say: i am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ; for it is the Power of God unto Salvation to every one that believeth; to the jew first and also to the greek. for therein is the Righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written the just shall live by faith. quoting romans 1:18 and also 16-17.

  22. Hi Andre, thanks for the welcome back. 🙂

    I didn’t know the pope was in the US at that time too. September is looking to be a very interesting month this year.
    Also the UN has its 70th annual summit the final week of the Hebrew year that month.


  23. sept 2015 will be epic i think. (that 70 number is significant 😉 ). in a whole host of ways. and i am not date setting but lots of things are to converge in that time frame not just economic but we’ll see what comes to fruition. i wait on the Lord as i watch many things on many fronts. anymore when i pray it is like i need to ask Him to move mountain ranges not just mountains….!…….because He is coming soon and these things coming up soon tell us He is at the doors. we are the generation (v 34) to see those things Jesus spoke of in matt 24. i am learning (kind of slow) that God is never early and never late so that we can know that what He has said will be exactly what in the exactly when.


  24. Yes Andre, 70…isn’t that the number representing all the nations of the earth?
    I’ve wondered if this will be the moment the world decides to divide the land and/or AC revealed during a time when the US is in economic turmoil or more.


  25. The following is a mail I got from a friend. I am posting without permission. These things also cross my mind.
    As reported yesterday, President Obama admitted that Netanyahu was correct when he said that the sunset clause in the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran “paves the way” for Iran to get nuclear weapons.
    Obama admitted that in years 13 and 14 under his deal, the breakout time, which has since dropped to its current 2-3 months, and which the deal hopes to expand to 1 year, then drops to zero

    Now check out these words

    I’m going to sign a deal with Iran – and after me, the flood. That’s what US President Barack Obama effectively said on NPR on Tuesday.

    It’s strange: A detailed agreement has yet to be formulated, yet Obama already knows that the Iranians will have new centrifuges that will allow them to produce a bomb almost immediately.


    Now, how about the following …

    Daniel 11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person (Obama?), to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
    Daniel 11:22 And with the arms of a FLOOD shall they be overflown from before him (Obama?), and shall be broken; yea, also the prince (Putin?) of the covenant. (Russia, Iran, Turkey, etc. destruction when they attack Israel, detailed in Ezekiel 38 & 39)
    Daniel 11:23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.
    Daniel 11:24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.


  26. james, the #70 pertains to universality so yes that would encompass the nations. genesis 10 speaks of the 70 persons after the flood who went out and repopulated the world. it is a 7 multiplied and the #7 is about completeness. about finishing. there are now 7 billion people on the earth. hmmm! also though the number 7 is about israel and her restoration. israel was 70 years in exile in babylon then back in the land (jer 25). israels’ 70 year anniversary is coming up extending from 2017-2018 (going by the hebrew calendar not gregorian). 70 years they are back in the land (a nation born in a day) yet it is in a sense not quite theirs yet until God takes care of their enemies. well that is all in the making!!!!! there are many 7’s and 70’s in the Bible for examples but you get the gist. all very intriguing isn’t it? God’s numbers always add up – HE is not into “fuzzy math” (al gore) 😉 .


  27. thanks vic. it is not hard now to see the progression in the events. obama (many preceding and many others being used as well) is being used to let evil come upon the world to bring about the finish the transgression. the times of the gentiles in these near daily and mounting manifestations. it is in high gear in my mind racing toward the great tribulation as the falling away is being fully manifested. will the 70 year anniversary cement the un’s intent to bring all on board against israel in some final decree that sends armies to surround jerusalem? who will be doing that will be coming into focus more clearly everyday as we watch. and then “someone” will have a “short time” to get the dirty done after those armies are there. the exact kickoff is coming sooner than some out yonder may think so i keep studying Matt 24 and Luke 21 and Mark 13 to spell it out as i compare the OT Scriptures to them and will, of course, bring the Revelation passages to light as well. persecution of God’s church will reach all shores-go full scale-with the man of sin at the helm. we are the generation with a front row seat….and our GOD will do wonders before our eyes. preserving His saints and preserving His beloved chosen israel.

  29. All interesting to consider Vic and Andre thanks 🙂
    I’m pretty sure Europe is yet to loom large in all of this, so not sure about the Obama’s role apart from bringing the US down, yet I’m still stunned by his stance on Israel as it hardens, it’s a wait and see, many things are now playing out in full view.

    I have come to understand that these things are foretold in such a way that we cant predict the future but that we/they might believe once the events have come to pass.


  30. i do not know what role obama plays in these last days, i just know he does. is not the ac in my thinking but is sure helping the agenda toward bringing him to prominence. the deck is being cleared so to speak for the global agenda and free & sovereign america and free & sovereign israel must be dismantled to get that show on the road if you will. that is what is being done systematically politically, economically, and militarily (and of course spiritually) and america has an incurable wound now i’m sad to say yet i know this is how it must play out. europe will rise somewhere in all of this and the face of europe has changed much from even 5 years ago by the muslim influence. is all very intriguing but in all of this i must stay focused on the Lord bringing things to light in His timing to co-inside with the Scripture. that is what proves it is Him working in the all these finer points of the many facets to this as He readies the big reveal. stay tuned as they say!
    our GOD is an awesome GOD….He reigns……. ❤


  31. I surrender all to you who thrills me, Lord God. I can’t get over you. I give thanks….have your way with me Father….use me somehow for the furtherance of your kingdom. I want to see you, I love you. Thank you for giving us Jesus


  32. have been singing this all morning……”have Thine Own Way Lord, have Thine Own Way. Thou art the Potter, i am the clay”….amen to what you said and you know what? i can’t get over Him either tony …and i don’t ever want to get over Him. Eternity is coming and we shall be like Him. i was rejoicing in the face of some real disappointment and rejoicing because of this….because my name is written in The Lamb’s Book of Life. ❤ JESUS is LORD.


  33. your fellowship/friendship here at this site enriches us all so much andrea. i take your words to heart, always. Bless you as you rejoice in the face of some real disappointment. Life is full of disappointments, yes and I am full of life. In Christ we persevere, amen. Our names are written in His Book of Life, wow! my son said to me that very same thing………* my love goes out to you all,…stick w/ Jesus


  34. that video vic is saddening as heck,….signs of the times for sure. God be with the younger generation. i pray the blood of Jesus over their lives. We need REVIVAL, wholly and completely pointing us to a Holy God. Blessings to you brother


  35. Hi James, I have read thru the common word agreement, [but not thru the appendix’s ] and i suppose it to be in the same spirit as chrislam,…. a compromising – lying spirit of no value, to put it mildly. The onslaught is moving,…slithering along. i would think that even Christians who disbelieve in the trinity, would be able to detect this lure away from truth. blessings brother…i am glad you made mention of this, its good to be aware of.
