When is Jesus’ true date of return?

The question of the exact, even approximate, time of Jesus’ return has been the subject of obsessive speculation and research over more than two thousand years.

Much has been misunderstood in this regard and today’s article will help clarify matters around an issue that remains the central hope of all who call themselves Christian and lived and died as such. But, to understand how and when Jesus will truly “return”, one has to read wider than the Canonised Scriptures (the present form of the New Testament). Reading must include Apocrypha – especially Gnostic Apocrypha; books banned by the Church Founders for, as we will now show, revealing “too” much!

Let us now make good use of Setswana – an ancient, much-underrated protolanguage – to unearth the root-meaning of “Apocrypha”. In a prior article, I explained the Greek term apo (a morpheme dimly understood by etymologists, as even they admit) as meaning to “undress” or “uncover” – thus apola in Setswana. Its antonym apa means “dress” or “cover”, thus apara in Setswana, and “apparel” (clothing) in English. “Apocalypse”, I had also explained, is made up of apo (uncover) + kalypte (“hidden” in Greek; ga-lepato in Sotho-Tswana); thus John’s “Revelation” is also called “the Apocalypse of John”. “Apocrypha” is thus made up of apo (uncover) + krypte (“secret” in Greek, an evident paradigm of kalypte), thus actually meaning “[a book] that uncovers what is [supposed to remain] secret”! This needs no further explanation.

Apocrypha aside, there are three primary New Testament sources for attempting to decipher when Jesus will return. The first is the synoptic gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The second is the epistles (letters) Paul wrote to the various churches he had founded. The third is John’s Revelation – the last book of the Bible. In the synoptic gospels, a convenient and cohesive place to begin is in John 21:20-23. Here, Jesus rebukes Peter who was extremely jealous of Mary Magdalene – the unnamed “disciple who Jesus loved” as Gnostic gospels like the Gospel of Philip boldly reveal (Peter and his breakaway partner-in-crime Paul resented the prospect of being led by a woman: see 1Corinthians 14:34-35, 1Timothy 2:12-15). Jesus tells Peter that he will have to live with her presence even “until my return”.


Gnostically, Jesus meant that Mary will remain with, even guide, the disciples until each of them meets up with his Holy Ghost (explained below), but John notes with amusement (verse 23) that the statement led to people believe that it meant that Mary will never physically die. This thinking was, of course, prompted by two basic misunderstandings that we now clarify.

Firstly, Jesus had said that “some will not die before they meet up with me and the Father” (Matthew 16:28). What did this mean? In Gnosticism (mysticism), though rare, one may reach the Seventh Heaven, where the Father resides, within one’s lifetime. Such people, e.g. Mary Magdalene “out of whom came seven devils/demons” (Mark 16:9; Luke 8:2) are “one with the Father” and will not die a real death like the rest of us (who have to be reincarnated to relearn missed spiritual lessons). The “seven demons”, I explained in many prior articles, is a Gnostic term for the Seven Deities (called “Demiurges”) each of who guards one of the Seven Heavens that lead to the Father, making sure one does not progress to the next level until spiritually ready. The real journey begins when one threads through the “Single (Third) Eye” of Matthew 6:22, the “Eye of the Needle” of Matthew 19:24, the Open Door to Heaven, and meets the Holy Ghost, the Astral form of the Saviour, in the Astral Plane – the First Heaven.

Next, Jesus had said that “this generation will not pass away” (Matthew 24:34) before the Jews see the first of terrible things that will be kick-started by the placing of “the Abomination of Desolation” in the Jerusalem Temple (Matthew 24:15-22). Since Jesus had also said (Matthew 24:29-31) that after other terrible events have passed and the End-of-Days have come, everyone will see “the son of man come with (or “on”) the clouds”, people calculated that since a generation is about thirty years, and Mary and Jesus were in their early thirties, Jesus will return when Mary is about sixty – when, plausibly, she would be still alive! They had, of course, misunderstood the sequence of events planned in the Illuminati Blueprint captured in the Book of Daniel.

Daniel did not lump all the signs in a single generation. Only Jerusalem’s destruction came in AD 70, hardly 40 years later, the cardinal trigger being the placing of the Abomination of Desolation in the Temple “Holy of Holies” (properly explained in prior articles). Other signs, up to and beyond AD 1844, the End-of-Days: the Seven Spirits of the Churches, Four Horses, Seven Seals and Plagues, Three Woes, etc. were properly sequenced by John (and duly unpacked for you in prior articles).

 Importantly, and as I have implied, it is not Jesus (“son of man”) himself who comes in the end-of-days; the synoptic gospels were redacted (edited, tampered with) to say so. Actually, John’s Revelation 14:14 clarifies that it is “one like unto (i.e. made to look like) the son of man”. This, alone, makes all the difference. And John cleverly employed a “curse” (Rev. 22:18-19) to preempt any move to redact his Revelation…

In fact, we explained in other articles that John’s “son of man” pointed to the advent of Bahaullah at a time the Jews, like “ripe grapes ready for the winepress” (Rev. 14:18-20), were being readied for their Seventh (and final) Chastisement – their genocide in the Second World War in line with Leviticus 26:27-33. Jesus will thus not return at some hazy time in the future. Rather, his Holy Ghost (or that of a Living Saviour, as is required: see John 9:5) already awaits inside all those ear-marked by the Father to be shepherded back to Him and His Kingdom which, the real gospel (“good news”) says, is already “at hand”.
