rated by great periods of time. This current period of time in

which we live will be 2 days in length, or 2,000 years. If we

add 30 A.D. to 2000 we get 2030 A.D. This is either the year

the tribulation starts (with the signing of a peace treaty by the

false messiah) or the year of the Revelation of Jesus Christ

when the false messiah comes to his end.

We now see that the two days (or 2,000 years) are to be

added to the time when Christ ascended (30 A.D., after He

had been “cut off”) and not when He came to earth, via His

birth (4 B.C.); which is something that many Bible teachers

and students believe in error, as of the time of this writing.

”See, your king comes to you,

righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey.”

The next verse (Zech. 9:10) picks up after our gap of 2,000

years ((4 x 490) + 40 years of probation + 30 A.D.). It speaks

of taking away implements of war and of ruling during a time

of peace. This is where Romans 11:26 will be fulfilled in that

“…all Israel will be saved.”

That is, all who are left after the

Tribulation (and the Antichrist) come to an end. Only then can

peace begin.

Since the inspection of the lamb for the sacrifice and the

sacrifice of the lamb are only four days apart (respectively, Ni-
