Is there a specific reference in the Bible that points to 2018 as the date of Christ's return?
There is, Daniel 12:12[NIV] where it said "Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end
of the 1,335 days." In the Bible, if days were used in prophecy, it often means years (Numbers
14:34) so, this 1335 days are actually 1335 years
Deciphering Daniel 12:12
Who is this One whom Daniel has said "Blessed is he who WAITS and arrives at the 1,335 days.?
[ESV]"
Jesus Christ

1

I know it because in Psalm 110:1 God said to Jesus "Set thou in my right hand until I make thine
enemies thine footstool" The phrase "UNTIL" implied A PERIOD OF WAITING for Christ before
his return to rule the earth
How long
As Daniel 12:12 has said 1335 years.
When shall we begin to count these amount of time? from the time that the daily sacrifice is
abolished, that is, at the start of the 1290 in Daniel 12:11.
"From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished...there will be 1,290 days"
What date in our calendar? 607 BCE -the year the daily sacrifice is no longer possible to hold
because the temple and the city of Jerusalem at that time has already been reduced to ashes by
the conquering Babylonians.
So 1290+1335=2625-607bce=2018
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------To check the accuracy of my calculation:
Jerusalem was prophesied to become a desolate place until the expiration of Israel's 70 years
captivity in Babylon. (Jeremiah 29:10)
Babylon falls to Persia October 539 BCE, (Encyclopœdia Britannica, 1946, Vol.2, p.852) Cyrus
ordered the Jews to return to their homeland later that year, so by 538 BCE the desolation of
Jerusalem is no longer in place, countingback 70 from 538 bce would bring us to 608 bce, from
608 bce if we begin to count the 2625 years then the first year of our count would point to 607
bce (like when your birthdate is year 2000, you become 1 year old at year 2001) and the 2625th
to 2018 ce
1290+1335=2625-607bce=2018
Blessed is he who waits and ARRIVES at the 1,335 days namely Jesus Christ

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is Sunny Maloloy-on Minardo A former member of the Watchtower Organization but
now a freelance Christian. Since my childhood I was already interested in knowing when the
End would come. No internet back then, no other books available for me to dig on this subject
except the Watch Tower's. But reading Watch Tower's books wont lead me anywhere other
than 1914 a date that according to Watchtower are from British clergyman E.B. Elliot, Robert
Seeley, and Joseph Seiss which Charles Russel -founder of the Bible Student Association- had
adopted and made well known. (Jehovah's Witnesses Proclaimers of God's kingdom p.134)
WHAT WERE THERE IN 1914
According to Russel, 1914 was the year the Gentile Times will end and that his expectation "is
that there will be wonderful manifestations of Divine judgments against all unrighteousness,
and that this will mean the breaking up of many institutions of the present time, if not all."
The "End of the Gentile Times" is interpretation taken from Daniel chapter 4 where according
to it: the heaven high tree was cut down but the stump was left, and bands of iron and of
copper were put on it 7 times, to keep the stump from growing until it was God's time to
remove the bands and let it start growing again. The summary of Watchtowers interpretations
for this are:
7x360=2520-606=1914
7: are the Times appointed by God to keep the tree from re-growing
The Tree represented the rulership approved by God -the Kings in David's bloodline or Dynasty
of David
360: are days of lunar calendar the Watchtower had used in multiplying 7 Times (From the
notion that since "3.5 times" in Revelation 12:14 are equivalent to 1,260 days [12:6] so it was
concluded then that 7 times are also equivalent to 2,520)
607 BCE: is the year of Jerusalem's destruction but Russel thought it was 606 so 7x360=2520606=1914.
1914: the year their countdown is finished. Though nothing significant had happen in Israel,
they concluded that the kingdom of David is restored in heaven on that year with Jesus Christ
ruling as king.
There are of course things to be considered before jumping to conclusion. For example, the
morning sunrise and the afternoon sundown that we have seen in the sky and could be read in

Ecclesiastes 1:5 does not mean as what our physical senses have perceive: that the sun revolves
around the earth thereby sun goes up and sun goes down.
"The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day."
(Proverbs 4:18)
We need to have an open mind if new evidence were presented contrary to our popular held
belief.
THE UNJUST
The Catholic church had Galileo thrown to prison for disclosing what he have observed in
heaven using his telescope: that the sun did not revolve around the earth rather the earth
around the sun. The church who dismisses God in relation to Exodus 20:4 insisted Gallileo
should be thrown to prison for contradicting Ecclesiastes 1:5. Today however, truth proved that
Catholic is wrong but Galileo is already a casualty of their bigotry.
THE TRUTH OF THE GENTILE TIMES
Eager to know 'When' but with nothing in my table except the Bible and the books of
Watchtower's, I tried multiplying 7 times to the calendar that I'd used, to see what would come
up, I've consider this out of the truth that: we're not actually using lunar calendar like the Jews,
Muslims and Chinese. Christian calendar are based on the sun 365 days in a year. So by
multiplying 7 Times in Daniel chapter 4 to 365 I got 2555 years (7x365=2555) I then proceeded
to subtract 607 from 2555 and then to my surprise I got 1948.
I knew from reading Watchtower's previous article that 1948 was the year when biological
Israel was restored so I was ecstatic on what I've found. But because I'm still part of the JW sect
at that time (2003) and have been indoctrinated to believe that the only people authorized by
God to interpret the Bible are the so-called Governing Body (JW were not allowed to entertain
any notion with regards to the Bible except of those that originated from Watchtower's, much
like Vatican in the middle ages who held the believer of Christ's ignorant by not allowing them
to read the Bible) I decide to send my findings to the Governing Body in New York for them to
study and present it to the Lord's people, "not as our own, but as the Lord's" according to
Russel. Russel believed the work of the Bible Student "has been to bring together these long
scattered fragments of truth and present them to the Lord's people not as new, not as our
own, but the Lord's" (Jehovah's Witnesses Proclaimers of God's kingdom p.49 pp.3)
Sadly, Russel's successor are no longer possessed by the same spirit Russel's have. They became
bigots like the Catholic church. I remember they told me in their response letter "not to talk this

knowledge in public so as not to become an issue in the congregation" they also implied that
these knowledge are from mentally disease individuals.
Submissive to Watchtower, I decided to keep this knowledge from my fellow JW. But the Lord's
word written in Luke 11:33 could not make me feel safe in listening to Watchtower. So I send
this letter to David Allen Lewis a person outside the JW circle. But as I found later on 2008 in his
website like the Watchtower he indicated "no one knows" on matter of the Lord's return.
NO ONE KNOWS
Of course I'm aware of what was in Mark 13:32. Jesus spoke those word to ward off the apostle
and the rest of the Christians from scrutinizing the things that don't belong in their life time as
the angel said to Daniel when the later inquired things related to the End "Go thy way, Daniel:
for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end." (Daniel 12:9) simply put, when
the time of the end came hidden words will be unsealed that the man of God maybe equipped
with knowledge necessary for salvation.
But though Daniel's lifetime is very far from the Time of the End, the Angel nonetheless did not
left Daniel and his reader no hint 'when' for the Angel said
"And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that
maketh desolate set up, there shall be 1290 days"
The angel said further
"Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the 1335th"
(Daniel 12:11,12)
But of course interpretation of this words are sealed up, until the time of the end came, then it
will be unsealed by the Father to prepare the bridegroom (Matthew 25:6).
"Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, unless he first he revealeth his secret unto his servants
the prophets." (Amos 3:7)
"No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed;
but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. For nothing is secret,
that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come
abroad." (Luke 8:16,17)

NEW LIGHT
I discarded the Watchtower's 1914 and moved on to the new light 1948 as end of the Gentile
Times. Based by the following reality:
[1] The calendar we used today is solar, consisting 365 days in a year
[2] Israel is undeniably restored in 1948
I therefore concluded that the proper calculation of the 7 Times in Daniel chapter 4 is:
7x365=2555-607=1948
The bottom line: the end of the Gentile times in relation with Israel is year 1948.
How about Jesus Christ?
"The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy
footstool." (Psalms 110:1) When Jesus Christ returned to heaven and Israel scatters in the globe
after being thrown outside of God's land in A.D 70 spiritually they became a footstool of Christ
who were then had became the ruling King in heaven
But in physical perspective, the enemy -the nation- that impaled the Son of God couldn't be
made a footstool of Christ unless it first appear in the scene after being wiped off by Rome in
AD 70. It does exist again in 1948. God resurrected this dead nation for a chance to embrace
Christ's, and if like in the past' resisted will be turned back to none existence the second time,
reduced to dust forever that Christ may trampled them on his feet in the day of his reign in all
the inhabited earth. The statement
"Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool," will then be fulfilled
completely.

RESTORATION OF GOD'S RULERSHIP IN THE EARTH
Watchtower taught that the Heaven high tree represented God's rulership in the earth. The
tree being cut off means the rulership was removed in the earth. The stump banded for 7 times
and the band being removed after the given times is interpreted as the restoration of the said
rulership after the preventive period. I'm into this interpretation except that, though restored
in 1948 the ship don't yet have its ruler. From the restoration of Israel until now never has
Israel had became a Christian. The nation clung to the religion who rejected Jesus and dismiss
his resurrection as a myth.
1914 and 1948 TIME FRAME OF CHRIST'S VISITATION
I think Jesus had visited the earth in 1914 and spent an amount of time parallel to his first
coming. I have this notion because if we count 30 years from 1914 we will arrive to 1944 and
3.5 years from 1944 is 1948.
Assuming Jesus symbolically returned in 1914 with the time of his presence parallel to his first
coming, then we have to count the years Jesus had before his ministry: 30 years, so
1914+30=1944. We assume 1944 as the parallel of year he was baptized back in the first
century. To continue, after he was baptized followed a 3.5 years ministry. So, 1944+3.5=1948
He was then impaled and later come to life again. Who came to life again in 1948? Israel. Is
Israel the body of Christ in the earth? unless they accept Jesus we could say no. But Jesus had a
spiritual body in the earth --the Christians. What process of restoration did God made them
subject beginning 1948? --Unity. Christians are divided. God wants to see them become one
again. Are there visible sign of this activity? I see yes through the World Council of Churches,
founded in 1948 by the Christians who longed for the re-unification of the churches, but over
the course of time has led astray and have never meet its goal.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------How do you know Jerusalem was destroyed in 607 BCE not 586 as most of the encyclopedias
do?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Simple, the prophecy in Jeremiah 25:11,12 said "And these nations (particularly Israel) shall
serve the king of Babylon 70 years and after 70 years I will punish the king of Babylon and that
nation saith the Lord."
When was this punishment occured?

539 BCE for that was the year when Babylon falls to Persia, (Encyclopœdia Britannica, 1946,
Vol.2, p.852) but this prophecy in Jeremiah 25:11,12 has a greater fulfillment though -where
the Babylon is no longer that of Nebuchadnezzar but that of Revelation 17:3-5 dubbed as the
Great Babylon, but in the meantime lets continue dissecting the truth whether its 586 or 607
BCE.
So, in continuation, Babylon according to secular sources had fallen to Persia 539 BCE,
countback 70 and you'll find 609 BCE as the outset of count for Jerusalem's 70 years desolation.
Year 609 BCE corresponded to Zedekiah's 9th year reign this was indicated in 2King 25:1, it said
"In the 9th year of Zedekiah’s reign, on the tenth day of the tenth month, Nebuchadnezzar king
of Babylon marched against Jerusalem with his whole army."
According to 2Kings 25:2,4 "the city was besieged unto the 11th year of king Zedekiah...And the
city was broken up." Destroyed.
If Zedekiah's 9th year coincided to 609 BCE, then his 11th would be to year 607 BCE. -the year
Jerusalem was broken up and burned down according to 2Kings 25:2,4
So you see, the destruction of Jerusalem is year 607 BCE not 586 as most of the encyclopidea
claimed. Take this: 7x365=2555-586=1969. What has happened in 1969? none.
Compared with 607: 7x365=2555-607=1948. What did happen in 1948? the restoration of
Israel.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Then why do the enclopedias fall to error?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Simple, they do not take the Bible into account.
The strongest evidence that confirmed the accuracy of 607 BCE is its connection to Israel's
restoration in 1948 CE. Concerning this, the law of God recorded in Deuteronomy 15:1 says to
Israel,
"At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release." "if thou buy an Hebrew servant, 6
years he shall serve: and in the 7th he shall go out free for nothing." (Exodus 21:1,2)
Since this law did not involve the land (in contrast to 'Sabbath for the Land' which has to be
observed upon Israel's entry to Promised Land [Exodus 25:2-4]), this takes effect immediately
after Israel leave Egypt.

Bible chronology points to Nisan 14, 1513 BCE as the date when Israel departs Egypt, thus if
numbered beginning that year, then the first year of the 'week of years' for Israel to observe
will be in 1512. The first 'year of release' (7th year) in 1505, while the 129th to 609.
(7x129=903-1512=609)
THE YEAR OF ISRAEL'S DEPARTURE IN EGYPT
The year of Israel's departure in Egypt namely Nisan 14, 1513 BCE can be trace by summing the
years from the time they left Egypt up to the construction of Solomon's temple which has a
total of 480 years according to 1King 6:1, the same reference also informed us of Solomon
being in his 4th year reign when the temple was constructed;
Solomon died in his 40th year reign, so from temple construction to his death, 36 years.
Before he died, Solomon at his old age, committed sin, (1King 11:4-7,11,12) and that sin was
continued by most of his successor, until it was ended by God when he allowed the Babylonians
to seize Jerusalem. According to Ezekiel 4:5, that error has amounted to 390 years.
70 years after the climax of that error, in
539 BCE, Babylon fell to the Persians,
Babylon was captured 6 months before 539
BCE could become a complete 1 year, (in
Israel's sacred calendar years were
reckoned beginning Nisan or Abib
equivalent to March April-Exodus 13:4;
12:2).
Babylon was captured on October,
therefore if all the years from the time
Israel leave Egypt to the fall of Babylon
were summed up, the total years will be
975 plus 6 months
In order to find when the Israelites have left Egypt, the next step is to count back 975 years
from October 539 BCE. (in Israel's civil calendar years were reckoned beginning Tishri or
Ethanim equivalent to September October--The Mishnah, Oxford University Press, 1933, p.188)
Thus, 539+975=October 1514.
But according to Exodus 13:4, Israel leaves Egypt 6 months before October that is Nisan
(March/April). Therefore, if we move backward 6 months away from October 1514, then we
could see that the date when Israel departed Egypt is between March April 1514.
