Jesus gave a parable "because he was nigh to Jerusalem AND because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear."
There are 2 versus I want to draw your attention to that were part of the parable: 14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us. ... 27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
I think I found in the old testament where Jesus may have been alluding to from these 2 verses.
2. Read 1 Samuel Chapters 8-12 These chapters are about Saul becoming Israel's first human king because they rejected God as their King. I think 1 Samuel 8-12 is literally the prophecy about Christ taking His kingdom back! Read those chapters from the perspective of Christ as being Saul...
I think there might be an allusion to a pre-trib rapture ( look for loaves of bread in the text ). And an allusion to the battle of Armageddon (Jabeshgilead). The Jabeshgilead citizens even make a covenant with Nahash the Ammonite for "7 days" !!!
Here are the two verses that seem to match with Luke 19
1 Samuel 8:7 And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. ... 1 Samuel 11:12 And the people said unto Samuel, Who is he that said, Shall Saul reign over us? bring the men, that we may put them to death.

I love these allusions! Jesus wove the Hebrew Bible into everything He taught. Reminds me of the Psalm 45 / Parable of the 10 Virgins connection.
"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."
I've now found a second allusion of the end times in 1 Kings 12 (more specifically I'm referencing a 3 thousand year times of the Gentiles).
The first allusion was in 1 Samuel Chapters 8-12 1: asses were lost for 3 days (ie the Jews during the dysphoria which started around 8th century BC, about 2800 years ago). 1a: Saul was sent to find the lost asses [Jesus was sent to the lost tribes of Israel] [And Matthew 18:11 is likely missing from your version of the "bible"; even on this website when you mouse over Matthew 18:11 you get Matthew 18:10 LOLOL fail... stick with the KJV]. 2: Samuel said the asses were found and to stop worrying about them. (I think because God will bring them back... so don't worry about it Ezekiel/Isaiah) 3: Saul was to meet 3 men, of which were carrying 3 lambs (first 3 thousand years), 3 loaves of bread (Gentile/dysphoria years), 1 bottle of wine (millennium). 4: Saul was to receive 2 of the 3 loaves of bread from the men (ie the last 2 thousand years of the Gentile/dysphoria or AKA... the Church age of Grace). ------------------------------ The second allusion to 3 thousand years is 1 Kings 12 1: Rehoboam was to be made King 2: the people said the burden of the yoke was too heavy for them, If the burden was made lighter, they would serve the king 3: Rehoboam told the people to disperse for 3 days and then come back (ie the 3000 year dysphoria) 4: Rehoboam chatted with the elders with Solomon (IMHO this is Christ in Heaven with the 24 elders) 5: Rehoboam didn't listen to the elders and went to those who grew up with him (IMHO this is Israel going with the anti-christ) 6: The young advice to Rehoboam was to tell the people that the king will make the yoke worse and to punish with scorpions ( ie exactly that in Revelation chapter 9) 7: The people come back after 3 days and the King basically says you're getting the scorpions
------------------------------- Now the Church age will have been 2000 years when we get to the year 2034, which should be 2000 years after the year the Jews stoned Stephen and totally rejected the Holy Spirit of God.
bernie: EW, I don't know anything on prophecies from Isaiah 23. I think I recall Bill Salus mentioning Lebanon being part of what he considers a prophetic war out of Psalm 83. Other prophecy teachers don't believe as he does,some saying it already been fulfilled.

bernie: I believe Amir and possibly others believe Psalm 83 was fulfilled in Israel's war for independence, or in 67/73. I don't have an opinion either way, because I haven't read or studied it.

bernie: I do think it's possible that if France, the EU, or the UN try to go in and disarm Hezbollah it could start WWIII.
