Babylonian Talmud: Tractate Sanhedrin
R. Kattina said: Six thousand years shall the world exist, and one [thousand, the seventh], it shall be desolate, as it is written, And the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. Abaye said: it will be desolate two [thousand], as it is said, After two days will he revive us: in the third day, he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
It has been taught in accordance with R. Kattina: Just as the seventh year is one year of release in seven, so is the world: one thousand years out of seven shall be fallow, as it is written, And the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day,’ and it is further said, A Psalm and song for the Sabbath day, meaning the day that is altogether Sabbath — 35 and it is also said, For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past.
The Tanna debe Eliyyahu teaches: The world is to exist six thousand years. In the first two thousand there was desolation; two thousand years the Torah flourished; and the next two thousand years is the Messianic era, but through our many iniquities all these years have been lost.
Has everyone heard of this famous Jewish Rabbi?
Rabbi Judah ben Samuel prophesied the following, “When the Ottomans (Turks) – who were already a power to be reckoned with on the Bosporus in the time of Judah Ben Samuel – conquer Jerusalem they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees. Afterwards Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation –which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”
Everyone knows that the Ottoman Turks ruled over Jerusalem for exactly 400 years from 1517-1917.(8×50=400)
Everyone knows that General Allenby took Jerusalem in 1917.
Everyone also knows that after the 6-Day War that Israel took all of Jerusalem in 1967 which was exactly 50 years after General Allenby took it.(1×50=50)
So, according to Rabbi Judah ben Samuel, the begining of the Messianic end time started in 1967.
