Prediction 2018


Although I am extremely privileged and grateful for the truths that God has revealed to me over the years, I have not wanted to ‘publish’ my modern day speculations re God’s plan for today. I have unfortunately suffered from ‘downward spiral thinking’ that: “Well, they aren’t really interested in the Daniel 9 prophecy being solved, so why then would they be interested in prophecy for today!!?” I would then justify this BY quoting what Jesus said, “Even if I raise someone from the dead, they still will not believe!!??” But after closer examination of what Jesus did next, he still continued to raise Lazarus from the tomb…  which subsequently means that I should follow his example, and present my speculations anyway (even if ‘they’ don’t believe)...

My speculations re Gods Plan for today have come from a study that has been with me for over ten years now, and only a select few have been privileged enough to hear this “Word”. The evidence is a historical examination, revealing “cycles in time”. It is compelling… and jaw-dropping… where many listeners have been challenged to rethink their lives and God.

And after showing some recent friends my findings re these “cycles in time”, they were so impressed by the weight of evidence, that they strongly encouraged me to share my principal prediction for the year 2018. Advocating that if this prediction did occur, that sharing them “after the fact” would not carry as much weight…. but if presented “before 2018”… followed by these predictions then happening… then obviously people must certainly recognize that God does indeed have a plan.

Now although you, the reader, may not have heard my presentations on “cycles within time”, the following principal prediction has been drawn from similar patterns around the time of the Persian Empire in 536 BC. This is not an exact science as the events that happened then are expressed differently (yet appear similar) for the year 2018. Furthermore, to qualify the parameters of the “year” 2018: this period of time is defined from October 2017 through to March 2019 (allowing a six month variance either side of ‘centred’ 2018 to allow for Empire related calendar changes over the centuries).

Right, with that out of the way, here it is…

PRINCIPAL Prediction for 2018:

The Anointed One issues the “decree” to rebuild the Temple & Walls.

The key words here are "Anointed One" ... the "Decree"... and the "Temple and Walls", which will have literal and metaphorical representations, which becomes problematic, as we now have the difficult task deciding/speculating what these terms could look like for today:

The Anointed One.

The Anointed One is a term used for a great King. It is not a term that is only associated with Jesus, where all throughout scripture there have been numerous "Anointed Ones". What this means for today's market is which King (or World Leader) is the focus of this prophecy.


A legislative term carrying the full weight of authority from the Anointed One (World Leader): a decree that will mark the history books for modern day Israel ( as well as metaphorical Israel).

Temple & Walls

Most people tend to think of "Temple" as a literal structure with reference to King Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem. However this structural "Temple" has been rebuilt several times throughout history which has included the protective walls on the outside of the city (not necessarily around the Temple only). Metaphorically, "Temple" can also refer to the "people" of that city, especially as Jesus even referred to Himself as the "Temple" (meaning that when people see him, they will know that God is with him). Subsequently, this could mean that the Christian Church may also have "Temple" connotations.


So there it is!!! If the above does happen, then we as believers in this “Word” have some serious discussion with regard to the following fourteen years. But if it doesn’t happen… then… well… I guess this would make me wrong re my prophetic claims… which means that you as the reader will have the mandate to “stone” me… having permission to publicly slaughter my Apocalyptic insights so as to rid society of my evils. With that in mind, here’s hoping I’m right!!!
