I have been asking this question since studying the Babylon the Great book back in the '60s. Maybe I'm thickskulled, but simply restating that it ended in October or Tishri doesn't explain away my reasons for asking the question. I'm only looking for answers about the date in 1914, and I'm not looking for the typical apostate replies that the year is wrong.
I question October/Tishri being the end of the Gentile Times, and thus the start of Jesus' reign, for the following reasons:
Revelation says the rider of the fiery-colored horse rides AFTER Jesus rides on the white horse. We are also taught that WWI was the result of Jesus' coronation, his throwing Satan to the earth, and Satan and the nations reacting against earth's new King.
Well, if all this occurred in Oct 1914, then how come the assassination that ignited WWI occurred in June. WWI started in July, with most major participants declaring war in August. It can't be said that much didn't occur until Oct., since there had been 3/4 million casualties by Oct 1.
Some interesting facts are that in 607BCE, Jerusalem's wall was breached, the temple destroyed, Jerusalem was burned, and the deportation started all in June to August.
I would welcome any help that doesn't question the year itself. Thanks.
