Dan 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
God warned Daniel twice that the End time mysteries will only be revealed during the last days. Thus all end-time teachings prior to the beginning of the Last Generation must to be discarded for its inaccuracies.
Dan 12:8-9 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, "My lord, what shall be the end of these things? " And he said, "Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end."
Mat 24:32 "Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place."
Our Lord Jesus told us the last generation will start when we see the fig tree (Israel) putting forth leaves (shows great Unbelief) which was clearly seen in the PLO-Israel Peace Treaty.
1993 PLO-Israel Peace Treaty caused
1. Start of Last Generation
2. Opening of the 1st. Seal
1994 - Opening of 2nd. Seal caused the Rwandan Genocide
1997 - Opening of 3rd. Seal caused the El Nino effect and the Asian Financial Crisis resulting to the greater and greater gap between the rich and poor. Then the rich were millionaires but now they are billionaires but the poor still do not have enough to feed their families.
2000 or Y2K - New Millennium
After the formation of the nation of Israel in 1948, Christians believe that we are living in the last days. Again in 1967, when the Lord gave the whole Promised land back to Israel, interest in end time revived. From the 1980s with the influence of the 'dispensationist', who believed that the end of the Millennium is the end of the sixth Millennium (6th day) and also the end of the period of Grace, end time messages flourished in churches. Though heresies were rampant, yet the fear of the soon coming Rapture kept these heretics in their places. This was the period when Christians were filled with goodness, kindness, mercies, generosity and love. Evangelism was their priority. Some wanted to sell all and serve the Lord, but only very few wicked Christians and pastors used this opportunity to enrich themselves by deceiving, cheating and robbing Christians.
To satisfy this hunger, unlearned end time teachers without truth taught the various schools of thoughts, which are non beneficial to Christians. Another group makes it easier by declaring that His coming is imminent or anytime He desires (so don't bother about end time events), completely ignoring all end time prophecies, warnings and teachings of our Lord Jesus. I just cannot imagine how these so called end time teachers will face God.
Y2K - Delay of Jesus' Coming?
Many unlearned Christians assumed that our Lord had delayed His coming.
