In 1217 he prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for 8 Jubilees a period of 400 years. This was full filled in the year 1517 when the Ottoman Turks seized control of the city of Jerusalem ending in the year 1917 exactly 400 years.
He then prophesied a 9th Jubilee of 50 years in which Jerusalem would be a “no-man’s land" fulfilled during the British Mandate of 1917 to 1967 a period 50 years where Jerusalem belonged to no nation and was called a no mans land.
He then prophesied a last 10th Jubilee of 50 years from 1967 to 2017 where Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and at the end of this Jubilee the Messianic “end times” would begin.
The End Times will begin in 2017 this may be the beginning of the 7 year tribulation ending in 2025
There will be change in the land of Israel in Jerusalem in 2017 sparking events in the end time.
This date corresponds to the 2300 days prophecy from 275 bc and the formation of the 4 kingdoms of the Greek empire to 2025 and well within the life of Pope Francis age 76 the last pope and his window of 14 years to the age of 90 around 2028. This also confirms 2017 and the 2300 days from 283 bc at the death of the 4th and last general of Alexander the great.
I believe we have only a short time left and the tribulation may begin not to long after 2017 and the confirmation of the covenant with many will initiate 1260 days until the abomination of desolation then 1335 days until the return of Jesus Christ and resurrection of the dead Daniel 12:11.
