To understand the Bible and Bible prophecy you first need to understand who the Bible is about. And here's a big hint: the who isn't you (or me). We're minor characters in it. The entire Bible was written because sin entered creation. And because sin entered creation, a perfect God had to deal with this aberration one way or another. The way He has chosen to deal with it ends up being a demonstration of the most important attribute of His character: faithful love. Because of sin, all of creation is able to learn the depth of God's love in a way that could otherwise never be known.
The who is the Promised Seed—the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. And through faith, everyone is invited to be joined to that Seed. To understand the prophecy of the Seed and who this Seed is, is to understand Bible prophecy and the whole story of the Bible.
And I fell at [the angel's] feet to worship him. But he said to me, 'See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.' - Revelation 19:10
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is the One I meant when I said, 'A Man who comes after me has surpassed me because He was before me... He must increase, but I must decrease.' " - John 1:29–30; 3:30
Bible prophecy and the Promised Seed are inseparable, which is why we can't teach one without the other. This is also why pastors and Bible teachers who steer clear of prophecy are really steering clear of Jesus Himself.
So, without further ado, here is the Bible in a nutshell...

"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."

EnochWalked: "It is up to 50% more transmissible than the virus that surged last spring and again in the fall, making it more adept at thwarting measures that were previously effective, WHO experts warned. Scientists have concluded that it is also more deadly." Wow.

EnochWalked: Well, it's technically the 7th in Israel now, so I don't know what the significance of 1260 days after September 23rd, 2017 is. Perhaps that will become clearer tomorrow, but in the mean time, I've been enjoying this: youtu.be/Yi7DD6NCGrI?t=418

EnochWalked: The video is called "End Times - Daniel UNSEALED! (2021 Great Tribulation)" and it was published last November, so maybe it has been discussed already. I found it in a comment on the latest Unsealed article. Doesn't point to a day, but 2021 looks special.

Boymaker2: EW: I get really confused when they multiply numbers that seem random to me, and it stops me in my tracks. But he is calling for a late Summer/Fall 2021 Tribulation and a return to reign in 2028. I'll spend time in this!

EnochWalked: Boym: I think the video did focus unnecessarily on the symbolism of some of the numbers, but I did like the mathematical fact that 2520 is the lowest number divisible by the digits 1 to 10. The main point though was using 360 day prophetic years.

EnochWalked: Considering 1948 x 360 isn't so random, given that both Israel was established as a nation in 1948 AD and Abraham was born 1948 years after Creation. The fact that this multiplication works so well I think is justification for considering 2520 x 360 too.

EnochWalked: That makes me think of another approach, though. The Revelation 12 sign occurred on the 3rd day of Tishrei, 5778 (on the Hebrew calendar), and if we go forwards 42 calendar months (ignoring leap months), we get 3rd of Nisan, 5781. This is March 16th, 2021.

bernie: Thanks EW, I think I'm getting some of that now. I have difficulty tracking anything with numbers and consider myself Math Challenged. Thankfully I'm not Rapture Challenged, I'm ready to go anytime.
