The 70 Weeks Prophecy given to Daniel reveals God uses Jubilee cycles to determine his timing of the events He planned for His Cosmos, His creation, His nation and His children.
From The Jubilee Code – Prophetic Milestones in Yaweh’s Redemptive Plan by William Struse:
Would you believe there are 41 Jubilee cycles from Adam to Abraham, another 41 Jubilee cycles from Abraham to Jesus and the break in the timeline of God dealing with the Jews with the destruction of the temple in 40 AD. Prior to this God had already appointed Paul to evangelise the gentiles. We are now in the 40th Jubilee of the era of the gentile church. It is no accident that in the 39th Jubilee from the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem and the dispersal of the Jews we saw the reestablishment of the nation of Israel. Is the time of the church drawing to a close? Could the 41 st Jubilee cycle from the destruction of the temple in 40 AD be a significant milestone?
I certainly think it could be and it fits with all the other Biblical prophetic signs we are witnessing unfolding in our time.
The biggest threat to Christianity in the modern day comes from within, a panel of theologians said at an event hosted by Ligonier Ministries on Tuesday evening to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

Nichols, president of Reformation Bible College; Sinclair Ferguson, teaching fellow and Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary; and Derek W.H. Thomas, senior minister at the First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina, and professor at Reformed Theological Seminary.
Sinclair Ferguson, Ligonier Ministries teaching fellow and Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, responded that the greatest threat is “probably Christianity in this century.”
“That’s a greater threat than Islam. Christendom is a far greater threat to Christianity than Islam is. Islam can never destroy the Gospel, but Christendom can easily destroy the Gospel and is destroying the Gospel,” said Ferguson, adding, “the Church is the greatest threat to real Christianity in the world. God help us.”
“Especially with the Church in America, we have far too casual a view of God and that might be right at the centre of some of our theological malaise,” noted Nichols.
They stated the truth, but what they failed to say is that the majority of church denominations and Bible Colleges in the USA no longer hold to the inerrancy of Scripture, particularly the foundational book of the Bible – GENESIS. The acceptance of Evolution and billions of years history for the universe totally undermines the foundations laid in Genesis and its history of the Cosmos. Moreover, we should not be surprised as the Bible tells us that in the “last days” apostasy is rife – “there will be a great falling away”.
