In 1970, American Christian writer Harold Lindsey made headlines after claiming to have unlocked the secrets of the Bible. Mr Lindsey said he had successfully predicted the apocalypse after decoding Matthew 24:32-33, suggesting the generation that saw the 1948 rebirth of Israel as a nation – apparently symbolised by the fig tree—would see the return of Jesus Christ. The author stated that a biblical generation is “something like 40 years” and suggested that “within 40 years or so of 1948, all these things could take place”.
When Jesus did not return, Mr Lindsey came under heavy criticism, but World Bible Society President Kenton Beshore would later argue his prediction over a biblical generation was incorrect.
Mr Beshore, who sadly passed away in 2016 said: “Jesus says in Matthew 24:34 that this ‘born one,’ or ‘this generation’ will not pass away until all these things are fulfilled.
“He pictures Israel as a Jewish boy, born May 14, 1948, that would grow up and become an old man until he comes in glory to establish his millennial kingdom.
“Now, how long is this generation, this ‘born one’? The first meaning of ‘born one’ is in Psalm 90:10.
“If you extend that from 1948, the outside date for the millennium would be 2028.”
However, Mr Beshore says the end of the world could be closer than we think.
He added: “Take off seven years for the Tribulation and the outside date for the rapture would be 2021.
“The rapture could take place before that, but certainly by then.
“The Lord will return before Israel becomes an old man by age 80 in 2028, and seven years earlier to rapture the church.”
