The Day of Thy Visitation is a comprehensive bible prophecy study primarily emphasizing the restoration of Israel in the context of the end of Church Age and the commencement of Daniel’s 70th week, the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.  The Second Edition, October 28, 2018, will be published on, or before November 1, 2018. The Second Edition revises the dates 1948-2018 based on new information and conclusions.  Previously, the author was of the opinion that 1948 was the triggering year for commencing a 70-year countdown to Daniel’s 70th week.  This revision suggests that 1949 is that year for two important reasons, which had not been previously recognized: (1) Israel’s admission to the United Nations on May 11, 1949 and (2) Israel’s  War of Independence which concluded in 1949, following the Joshua example, that God’s land grant promises required Israel to dispossess the land from its inhabitants.   It was Israel’s victorious War of Possession, the Conquest of Canaan 2.0, which matured Israel, in God’s view, beyond the mere declaration of independence, by appropriating God’s promises to the seed of Jacob, very likely commencing a 70-year countdown to Daniel’s week 70th week.

The author distinguishes his approach to biblical eschatology utilizing the analytical skills of a lawyer writing a trial brief using the Scriptures and current day events as his statutes and factual background for analyses and conclusions.  This novel approach has produced results which are vastly different from the traditional and historic views dealing with the restoration of Israel, the construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem, Daniel’s 70th week covenant and the probable season of the Resurrection/Rapture event.   Mr. Wilson’s analysis has been what lawyer’s term de novo or a “case tried anew”.  He questions the historic views on biblical eschatology.  He desconstructs the Scriptures analyzing every detail of preeminent end time prophecies such as Daniel 9, Zechariah1 and Revelation 12.  His conclusions are supported by overwhelming evidence and scriptural citations.  He suggests that Daniel 9’s elusive “confirmed covenant” is associated intimately with the Abrahamic promises.  His analytical proof based on Romans 11 and Isaiah 59 is compelling.  Additionally, he conclusively proves that the Zechariah 1 seventy year period is not the seventy year Babylonian exile period suggesting that it represents the period 1949-2019.  Again, the analysis is authoritative being firmly seated in Scripture.  Mr. Wilson has taken the apostle Paul’s words to heart and “proven all things” in the context of his prophecy analysis.  He believes that the Scriptures should interpret the Scriptures.  He has confined his inquiry exclusively to the King James Bible.  Mr. Wilson’s doctrinal positions are based on a dispensational, pretribulational, and premillennial view of biblical eschatology.

Overview of Chapters

Chapter 1 introduces the study which is principally focused on the restoration of Israel prior to Daniel’s 70th week as preparation for the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.  The book essentially focuses on the seventy year period 1949-2019 and suggests that Zechariah 1 speaks directly to these 70 years preceding the construction of the Third Temple.  It also analyzes and discusses the reasons why I have confined my studies to the King James Bible (KJB).

Chapter 2 deals with Zecharaiah1 in great analytical detail.   The purpose of this detailed analysis is to conclusively prove that this chapter’s 70-year period is not the 70-year Babylonian exile period, as suggested by the majority of Bible expositors.  The distinguishing difference between Zechariah 1’s 70-year period and the 70-year Babylonian exile is the nature of God’s attitude and declarations concerning each period.   The Babylonian exile was termed the “70-years of desolations of Jerusalem and Zechariah 1’s termed the 70-years of indignation.  Desolation and indignation are biblically defined as opposites.  This difference mandates that we must consider Zechariah’s 70 years as a different period of time.  It is my opinion that this 70-year period is 1949-2019.

Chapter 3 deals with Ezekiel 20:33-37, in support of Zechariah 1’s 70-years of indignation.  It is offered as proof that when God restored Israel to the land following the Diaspora exile, that Israel returned in “unbelief”.  This unbelief is evidenced by the fact that this regathering restoration has been “with God’s fury poured out” as declared by Ezekiel.  This period of “fury poured out” fully supports Zechariah 1’s description as a period of indignation.    Additionally, Ezekiel 20 offers proof that God will bring a portion of Israel “back into the covenant” relationship during Daniel’s 70th week.  This covenant fully supports the authors proposition that the “confirmed covenant” during Daniel’s 70th week is associated with God’s original promises to Abraham and remnant Israel’s salvation at the Second Advent of Christ.

Chapter 4 is short analysis of the “fig tree parables” of the Gospels focusing on Jesus’ “end of age” discussion in Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13.   The undeniable conclusion is that the “fig tree” represents the nation of Israel and “all the trees” represents the United Nations.  This fig tree nation parable is clearly set in our days and is in perfect alignment with the Zechariah 1’s view of the seventy years 1948-2018.  We are the generation which Jesus referred to in his discourse.

Chapter 5 analyzes Revelation 12 with the particular emphasis on the Old Testament imagery suggesting the rebirth of a new Jewish nation during Daniel’s 70th week described as “remnant Israel”.   Remnant Israel will be “valiant for the truth” of God in Christ.  They will keep the commandments of God and have the faith and testimony of Yeshua/Jesus in the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

Chapter 6 analyzes the literary architecture of Daniel 9 and Isaiah 59.   This chapter compares and contrasts these two chapters side by side proving beyond any doubt that Daniel 9 was constructed in parallel with Isaiah 59.   This analysis solves the riddle of Daniel’s elusive covenant.  This analysis proves that the Isaiah 59:21 covenant is the same covenant referred to in Daniel 9:27.  It is a divine covenant which will be confirmed in the period following the Resurrection/Rapture of Christ’s own people.

Chapter 7 analyzes Isaiah 28 specifically addressing the nature of the “covenant of death” and its relationship to Israel’s Messiah.  Isaiah 28 is an indictment against Israel, not unlike Isaiah 59.  The crown of pride, Israel’s position in God as His chosen people, and their failure to understand doctrine became the “covenant of death” which is the law.  The crown of glory had been intended for Israel, but she had fallen by her iniquity.   The crown of glory is reserved for the remnant seed of Jacob, the future residue of His people who will be “valiant for His truths” in the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

The Appendices include a number of articles which support the preceding seven chapters.  These appendices include six articles titled:  Six Blood Moons,  A Scriptural Case for a Pentecost Rapture, Who Stands at the Beginning and End of Daniel’s 70th Week, The Seventy Year Visitation Patterns of God, Covenant Time: God’s 490-Year Pattern and Biblical Christianity: A Paradoxical Expression in Quantum Mechanical Theory.
