The beginning of WW1 in 1914 marks the start date of a 120 year time period where three world wars will culminate in the fulfillment of all biblical end times prophecies to the end of this age with the redemption of Israel by Messiah (Mashiach). The end of WW1 brought the fall of the Ottoman empire and occupation by British forces as the United Kingdom was granted control of most of Palestine which opened in time even more Jewish migration. The end of WW2 created the path to a recognized nation. The end of WW3 will bring in the completion of this age with the redemption of Jerusalem by the return of the Messiah.
"In Jewish tradition numbers have meaning. 70 is a number we see appearing over and over, a pattern that emphasizes significance. Here are a few examples that you can learn about to better understand the many faces of the nation and history of our people Israel." Israel Forever
49 years is also very important to Jewish history. It is the cycle of years leading to the year of Jubilee, procuring freedom and redemption from debts and slavery. "You shall count off seven Sabbaths of years, seven times seven years; and there shall be to you the days of seven Sabbaths of years, even forty-nine years. Then you shall sound the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land. You shall make the fiftieth year holy, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee to you; and each of you shall return to his own property, and each of you shall return to his family. That fiftieth year shall be a jubilee to you." Wikipedia
For the first time in history, in the fullest sense, "Nation was rising against Nation". More than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, Americans and Commonwealth forces were mobilized. More than 15 million people were killed. By the war's end, four major imperial powers, the German, Russian, Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires, had been militarily and politically defeated, with the last two ceasing to exist. The revolutionized Soviet Union emerged from the Russian Empire, while the map of central Europe was completely redrawn. Also of interesting fact is the federal reserve was put in place in 1914. The financial resource of Babylon in the USA.
The following are comments on the major changes that took place to the world with the breaking out of World War 1 in 1914.
“The last completely ‘normal’ year in history was 1913, the year before World War I began.” ~ Editorial in the Times-Herald, Washington, D.C.
“Increasingly, the 75-year period from 1914 to 1989, covering two world wars and the cold war, is being seen by historians as a single, discrete epoch, a time apart in which much of the world was fighting war, recovering from war or preparing for war.” ~ The New York Times
“The whole world really blew up about World War I and we still don’t know why. Before then, men thought that utopia was in sight. There was peace and prosperity. Then everything blew up. We’ve been in a state of suspended animation ever since . . . More people have been killed in this century than in all of history.” ~ Dr. Walker Percy, American Medical News,
"More than 50 years after 1914, German statesman Konrad Adenauer wrote: “Security and quiet have disappeared from the lives of men since 1914.” ~ The West Parker, Cleveland, Ohio
“By all contemporaneous accounts, the world prior to 1914 seemed to be moving irreversibly toward higher levels of civility and civilization; human society seemed perfectible. The nineteenth century had brought an end to the wretched slave trade. Dehumanizing violence seemed on the decline. . . . The pace of global invention had advanced throughout the nineteenth century, bringing railroads, the telephone, the electric light, cinema, the motor car, and household conveniences too numerous to mention. Medical science, improved nutrition, and the mass distribution of potable water had elevated life expectancy . . . The sense of the irreversibility of such progress was universal.” But . . . “World War I was more devastating to civility and civilization than the physically far more destructive World War II: the earlier conflict destroyed an idea. I cannot erase the thought of those pre-World War I years, when the future of mankind appeared unencumbered and without limit. ~ The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World, Alan Greenspan
“Historic events are often said to have ‘changed everything.’ In the case of the Great War [1914-1918] this is, for once, true. The war really did change everything: not just borders, not just governments and the fate of nations, but the way people have seen the world and themselves ever since. It became a kind of hole in time, leaving the postwar world permanently disconnected from everything that had come before.”-A World Undone, by G. J. Meyer
“The 1914-18 war that destroyed the 19th century is not over.” What did he mean? He explained: “History doesn’t pay any attention to calendars. The 19th century ~ defined as a set of beliefs, assumptions, attitudes and morals ~ did not end on Jan. 1, 1901. It ended in 1914. That’s also when the 20th century, defined the same way, began. . . . “Virtually all of the conflicts that we have been concerned with all of our lives stemmed from that war. Nearly all of the intellectual and cultural currents that we have lived with were born out of that war. . . . “I think it did such damage because it shattered people’s belief that humans can control their destiny. . . . The war disabused people of that belief. No one on either side thought it would turn out the way it did. It destroyed the British and French empires. It killed off the best of a whole generation of British, French and German men. . . . In a short period of time, it killed 11 million people.” ~ The Orlando Sentinel
“Before 1914 the monetary and the financial systems were compatible. . . . If one takes August 1914 as marking the dividing line between them, the contrasts between the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries are striking. In many aspects of human affairs there has been a complete reversal of trend. . . . One major reason was the severance of the linkage between the financial system and money with intrinsic value that began in 1914. . . . The breaking of the linkage was a momentous event. . . . 1914 marked a radical, and in the end catastrophic, transformation of that system.” ~ Ashby Bladen, a senior vice president of The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America
“It is indeed the year 1914 rather than that of Hiroshima which marks the turning point in our time.” ~ René Albrecht-Carrié, The Scientific Monthly
“Ever since 1914, everybody conscious of trends in the world has been deeply troubled by what has seemed like a fated and predetermined march toward ever greater disaster. Many serious people have come to feel that nothing can be done to avert the plunge towards ruin.” ~ Bertrand Russell, The New York Times Magazine
“Everything would get better and better. This was the world I was born in. . . . Suddenly, unexpectedly, one morning in 1914 the whole thing came to an end.” ~ British statesman Harold Macmillan, The New York Times,
“In 1914 the world lost a coherence which it has not managed to recapture since. . . . This has been a time of extraordinary disorder and violence, both across national frontiers and within them.” ~ The Economist
1914 then counting 70 years to 1984
1984 then counting 49 years to 2033
2034 begins the year of Jubilee in the New Age
From 1914 to 2034 is 120 years. Jesus referenced the coming end of the age with the level of destruction and "reset" as similar to the time of Noah. "As the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man." (Matt 24:37). A 120 year cycle implies a divine time of waiting. God gave the generation of Noah a 120 year period to allow humanity to choose to change their behavior before engaging in a complete cleansing and repopulation of the earth. His major complaint of why He was forced to act was how they had filled the earth with violence to the point that almost every thought they had was unloving and godless. God reveals His intentions and times to His people. The Jews were told the time when their Messiah would appear and enter the Sanctuary, and He did. Noah knew the time frame given to his generation from the beginning to the end. He was not caught unaware. He was told the very week before the destruction was to start to go into the ark and seal the doors. Why would God do anything less for His people today both Jew and Gentile? The prophecy of the rise of the 8th king was given as a "last call" to know to prepare for what is soon coming. To recognize we are entering the most deceptive, violent and destructive time period at the end of this age. We should read and meditate on Jesus's teachings and commands often.
We should listen to Him! Follow Him! Love Him! Obey Him!
