Per my 800-page book: “The Language of God in Prophecy”, the Epistle of 1 John in the New Testament is tied to the 4th Year of the Tribulation, which is this year - 2014 - according to the extensive research in the same book. The Chanukah Menorah shown in the illustration attached to this article was taken from that book, in the section where I show how the 27 books of the New Testament form three groups of nine that correspond to three Chanukah Menorahs. Here is an excerpt from my book that explores this phenomenon:

Excerpt From Pages 34-35 of My Book: “The Language of God in Prophecy”:

In the First Epistle of John, which should show some sign of being connected to the fourth year of the Tribulation, the following passage gives verification that it is speaking to the Tribulation Saints:
“For all that is in the world… is of the world. And the world is passing away… but he who does the will of God abides forever. Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.” - I John 2:16-18  
Here John speaks of the Antichrist, and the many little antichrists that aid him in his sinister aims. John also repeats that “it is the last hour,” suggesting that the early Christians, who were under tremendous persecution, expected Yahshua to come again at any moment to save them. Could their belief in Christ’s imminent return have been a prophetic call to those saints who will await Yahshua’s coming in an even greater time of persecution? It seems so, especially when John states that the Antichrist will deny the deity of Christ. Though many little antichrists have done so, the Antichrist will deny the existence of both God the Father, and the Son:
“Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus (Yahshua) is the Christ (Messiah)? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.” - I John 2:22  
Uncannily, this passage in the First Epistle of John appears to address just what the Antichrist is supposed to do in the fourth year of the Tribulation period. Most theologians agree that the Prophet Daniel foretold that the Antichrist will make a covenant or treaty with “many” at the beginning of the Tribulation period (Daniel 9:27). After three and a half years, however, the Antichrist will break the treaty, proclaim that he is God, and set up his own image to be worshiped:
“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” - II Thess. 2:3-4  
Uncannily, this prophecy is found in the book that claims the center position in the nine branched menorah formed by the books of Ephesians through Philemon. If we see Ephesians and Philemon as framing books around the seven in between, then the Second Epistle to the Thessalonians is in the fourth position of this seven branched menorah, and may be connected to the fourth year of the Tribulation period - just as the First Epistle of John is! To strengthen the idea that John’s first epistle is prophetically speaking to the Tribulation Saints, he makes the following plea:
“And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may… not be ashamed before Him at His coming.” - I John 2:28  
Here, we find two references to Christ’s Second Coming in one sentence, making it clear that John expects Yahshua to return at any moment. Throughout his first epistle, John also continually speaks of Christ’s character, and the future gift of everlasting life that all those who love Christ will one day receive.

Of the three epistles remaining in the group of seven beginning with the Epistle of James, the Second Epistle of John contains only 13 verses, and his third epistle only has 14, so they rank as the shortest books in the New Testament next to Jude, which follows them with only 25 verses.

If these three epistles are connected in theme to the last three years of the Tribulation period, their very brevity is suggestive of the End Time prophecy in Matthew 24:22 that says: “for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.”  In this passage, could “those days” be a direct reference to the last three years of the Tribulation period? It is possible; since Yahshua’s prophecy in Matthew speaks of the elect in the same way that the Second Epistle of John is addressed to “the elect lady, and her children” (2 John 1).

“The elect lady” being referring to in this epistle is likely the True Church - a “Lady” that is the Bride of Christ. Interestingly, in the Book of 1 Enoch - which is likely the oldest existing piece of apocalyptic literature ever written - “elect ones,” or saintly people, and “The Elect One,” or the coming Messiah are referred to over a dozen times. As we will see in the upcoming discussion of the Epistle of Jude, the Book of 1 Enoch is referred to in the New Testament. This suggests that the apostles and early church fathers were familiar with Enoch’s End Time teachings.

End of Excerpt 1 From My Book: “The Language of God in Prophecy

In the book that this excerpt came from, I showed that the Hallel Psalms 110 through 118 were also connected to a Nine Branched Menorah pattern, with each branch of the Menorah representing a corresponding year. Based on hidden prophecies in the Psalms (which are fully explained in my book), these are the years 2010 through 2018.

According to 1 John’s connection to 2014, the 4th year of the final 7-year Tribulation, we are now in the year that the many Antichrists that are the heads and horns of the Beast and that control the Beast Government should be plainly obvious! Verse 19 of 1 John 2 also makes it clear that these Antichrists were hidden within the Body of Christ, or the Church, but went out from it so that they could be made “manifest” as traitors to the cause of Christ! So look at the leaders of America in Congress and the White House, and the leaders of the other nations like the United Kingdom who have posed as Christians in order to get elected, and you will see the Antichrists who are the heads and horns of the Beast!

In a prophetic word that God gave me, which I also discussed in the same book, I was shown that 21 years would pass from the year 1994 before the Tribulation would end:

Excerpt From Pages 88-89 of My Book: “The Language of God in Prophecy”:

In light of Sacred Astronomy‘s use to foretell the prophetic fulfillment of Yahweh’s Will, and coupled with the foreboding nature of the 9th of Av, the remarkable bombardment of Jupiter on that date must have some vital significance for Jews, and spiritual Israel in general. In fact, when this Jupiter bombardment is analyzed critically, it reveals many startling correlations that verify other prophetic interpretations given in this chapter. For example, this comet bombardment affected Jupiter, the planet that represents the Messiah in Jewish thought. In addition, this bombardment happened while Jupiter was in the constellation of Virgo, the Virgin. This Zodiac sign represents not only the virgin mother of Yahshua, but also the Seed of the Virgin - Yahshua and His disciples, the saints. This comet bombardment may therefore be an omen of future dire events that will hurt the figurative Body of Christ, which is the True Church.

This comet bombardment lasted seven days, which is a biblical number signifying both completion and rest. Furthermore, there was one comet that became 21 fragments that bombarded Jupiter. Now, if we look at this event mathematically, 1 plus 21 equals 22. This is the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet, and it is therefore connected to the totality of God’s prophetic word. This is why there are many prophetic allusions in the Bible to Christ as “the Beginning and the End”, “the Alpha and the Omega” and “the First and the Last,” as well as allusions to Yahshua as the Beginning and the End in the Great Sphinx, and in the heavenly signs of Virgo and Leo.

The number 22 also suggests a period of time marking the onset and completion of some major prophetic event. Could this period of time be 22 years from 1994? If so, 1994 + 22 = 2016. Uncannily, as shown in Chapter Eight of this book, this year is also targeted by the Antechamber in the Great Pyramid at Giza as the possible year when Yahshua may return to fight the Battle of Armageddon.

End of Excerpt 2 From My Book: “The Language of God in Prophecy

If the preceding information gleaned from my books is correct, only two years may still remain in the Tribulation before Yahshua comes to fight the Battle of Armageddon, and the First Rapture - if there is to be one - should be imminent. As I discussed in another section of my book on prophecy, the end date in the Antechamber corresponds to June 1st, 2016, when the Battle of Armageddon may begin.

However, the Battle of Armageddon may not end in a day. In fact, since it involves many nations and it will be conventional war with troops gathering around those nations that God identifies with Israel (such as the nation of Israel and the many nations in Europe, the British Commonwealth, and the USA that have Israelite ties), it could take several months to a year or more, and it will likely span the entire globe before it is finished being waged.

Sadly, the Earth will be completely devastated at the end of this war from the Seven Bowl’s of God’s Wrath that are poured out just before this final End Time battle. It will therefore take time for the Earth to recover from this devastation. In addition, a Judgment of all the remaining mortal people on the Earth by the Body of Christ will take place before Yahshua's Millennial Kingdom will be set up to see who will be allowed to serve in the kingdom, and who will be cast out into the outer darkness surrounding the kingdom.

In the meantime, we need to be paying attention to the fact that the Antichrist or Son of Perdition and his fellow antichrists that are leaders who posed as Christians to get elected in the West are setting up their totalitarian government right now, and it is soon going to become horrifyingly obvious to the world that none except those who are loyal to these elite leaders will have any semblance of freedom. We will all either become slaves to the Beast by taking his Mark, or risk death trying to escape it until Yahshua comes for us. This means it is a time for sober, somber reflection, prayer and vigilance, not partying and drunkenness. We need to stay alert, keep watch, and be ready for Yahshua's coming at any time. As we do so, we need to remember to be strong in Yahshua.

Do NOT be afraid, for Yahshua and His Spirit will be with us all, even to the End of the Age, as Yahshua Himself promised when He issued the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20!

Maranatha! Yahshua is coming very, very soon!
