Since we know that the end of all things was NOT truly at hand back then, and we know that all Scripture is God-breathed and true, we need to ask why Peter said this? After much study, my own conclusion may surprise you, but it is based on a curiously prophetic Chanukah Menorah pattern that runs throughout the Bible, and can be found connected to the Hallel Psalms, and the entire 27 books of the New Testament - where three 9-branched Chanukiah patterns mark the Gospel of Matthew through to the Book of Revelation.
Fascinatingly, the menorah above also shows that the epistle of 1 John has a reference to the coming appearance of the Antichrist, which corresponds to the year 2014, a year that is the middle year of a prophetic seven to nine year period that our Creator God marked as special with amazing Signs in the Heavens like the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014 and 2015, as well as with the connection of these same years to the Hallel Psalms 110 through 118.
The text in 1 John says that - as of 2014 - there would be many antichrists on the scene, but that THE Antichrist is about to come. This likely means that the Antichrist will appear either in 2015 or in a later year leading up to the Great Tribulation, which would mean anytime from 2015 onward. What amazes me is that I dd not see this when I made the illustration. I was still trapped into thinking that the Tribulation had to be seven years.
As my illustration shows, John alluded to the coming of the Antichrist amid a flood of many little antichrists at “the last hour”. Could it be that John knew that his epistles numbered 1 through 3 would be for the benefit of the believers living on Earth from 2014 through to 2016 as a reminder of what should be most important to all believers as the end of all things draws near? Could it also be that we are much closer to the end of this world than conventional Bible Prophecy teachers would have us believe?
I think that this may indeed be the case, and we best be concentrating on cultivating all the love and forgiveness that we can. This is especially important now more than at any other time in history - for Yahshua is coming very soon, and the world is becoming more hate-filled and dangerously unstable everyday.
I discussed both the Heavenly Sign connection and the Hallel Psalm connection to the years 2010 through 2018 in detail in my book on Bible Prophecy that is entitled “The Language of God in Prophecy”. The reason that I am bringing this to everyone's attention right now is because I was just about to quote 1 Peter 4:7-11 as a verse in keeping with the love that Valentine's Day is dedicated to when I noticed the phrase “the end of all things is at hand”, and it reminded me of what I had written about the prophetic nature of these words in my book - a book that was first published nearly ten years ago.
For your enjoyment and edification, I've posted that section of Scripture in 1 Peter 4 discussing the importance of love when facing the end of all things below:
As shown in the Chanukiah illustration above, 1 Peter corresponds to 2012, the second year of the seven year period from 2011 through 2017. We are now in the fifth year of that special seven year period within the nine year period of 2010 through 2018 indicated by the Chanukiah Menorah that corresponds with the epistle of 2 John. At the time that I discerned this Chanukiah pattern, I was convinced that it corresponded to the seven year Great Tribulation, as the illustration clearly shows. However, it may not have been meant to mark a seven-year Tribulation at all, but a prelude period of 5 and a half years leading to a shorter 3 and a half year or 42 month Great Tribulation. This period for the Great Tribulation is clearly specified in Revelation 11:2-3, 12:6 and 13:5.~*~ 1 Peter 4:7-11 ~*~“BUT THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. 8 And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” 9 Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. 10 As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ (Yahshua Ha Mashiach), to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
One clue to this fact that I missed back in 2004, when I first spied this pattern and saw its connection to the End Times, is the fact that the Book of Revelation corresponds to the last lamp on the nine branched menorah, suggesting that the final years of the Great Tribulation might be from the middle of 2015 through 2018, since 2018 is the year that is connected to the last lamp on the Chanukah Menorah corresponding to the Book of Revelation, and this may be when the seven Bowls of God's Wrath will be poured out on the wicked.
To add fuel to my assertion, it should be clear that we are truly near to the end of all things, and that the end of the world as we know it is at hand. This can be seen by multiple witnesses, including the 2011 through 2016 date line found in the measurements of the Great Pyramid Antechamber, the Hidden Prophecies in the Hallel Psalms corresponding to the years 2010 through 2018, the Prophetic Bible Menorah Patterns, the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad and other Celestial Signs, the huge increase in Cataclysmic Weather, the massive amounts of Civil Unrest and unrepentant sin, the increasing threat of Nuclear and Biological Warfare, the increasing number and severity of earthquakes, and the great proliferation of new and incurable diseases and massive bird, fish, insect, and animal die-offs.
Because there are so many prophetic signs and witnesses joining together at this time in history to warn us of how close we are to Yahshua's soon return, we need to make sure that we love regardless, and forgive always. We must learn to forgive the unforgivable, and to love the unlovable. But, in order to succeed at it, we must also cultivate a strong relationship with our Father God and His Son and Spirit in prayer, and couple this with a powerful desire to follow in Yahshua's footsteps. This will seal our success, along with a strong reliance on the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Together with our Father God Yahweh, we can do the impossible, loving the unlovable unto salvation, and forgiving the unforgivable unto redemption. Make the Creator God of the Bible proud! Love God and your neighbor - especially your brethren in Christ - with all your heart, and forgive those who try to hurt you or use you, just as you love God and He forgives you. Also, remember that we can show no greater love than to risk our lives to give the gift of the Gospel of Redemption coupled with the Gospel of Salvation to all the lost sheep in this world who need our compassion and love.

IMPORTANT CLOSING NOTE: The prophecy timeline and events that surround the Pre-Tribulation Rapture scenario taught by mainstream prophecy teachers are THEORIES. The Pre-Wrath Rapture view has as much a claim to validity, if not more so. My view of Christ and His Word is not any different than mainstream Evangelical beliefs. I simply have a somewhat different view of Eschatology or the End Times.
I don't deny the coming of the Antichrist and the Beast, or the promise of the Rapture, so there is no reason to get hostile because of this. It's impossible to grow in our faith if we never question what we have been taught, and ask God to help us see where we might be in error. In that regard, the Book of Revelation is quite clear that the Great Tribulation is 3-1/2 years long, not 7, just as I stated in my article above.
Christ fulfilled the first half of Daniel's 70th Week, so it is not a future event. The abomination of desolation was the rejection of the sign of the veil that was torn in two inside the Temple to Yahweh in Jerusalem. This veil signified the body of Christ that was offered as a sacrifice to God on the Cross for our sins so that we could have full access to the Throne of God in prayer, and since the Priests rejected Christ, they would have replaced that torn veil with one that was not torn, creating an abomination.
Whether you accept this truth or not is your choice. The important thing to remember here is that we are cognizant of the fact that Yahshua is indeed coming soon for His Bride and the Five Wise Virgins, and that is what truly matters. Maranatha!
