Comparing James 5: 1-3 with Ezekiel 7: 19 , It seems the world money system will crash, with people throwing their silver in the streets. This is linked to God’s wrath in Ezekiel. Do you think that the ultimate economic crash will then be reserved for the tribulation period ?
In your study: “The Terminal Generation” you mentioned: “In any countdown to the 2nd coming the year 1948 is viewed as the obvious starting point, but in Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy the countdown to the 1st coming began with the rebuilding of Jerusalem, not the re-gathering of the nation.”
I found your article Seven major signs of the Second Coming – Thank You very helpful– Be careful however to not set dates- Jesus himself said he did not know. Yes, current events point to His coming soon — I pray that He will !!
I live in the U.K. and was recently listening to a program on the God channels. I nearly fell out of my chair when the guest commented that within the European Community, there is a “select” group of ten nations, and that this number would never be increased. He also stated that some sort of military agreement had been signed by Israel and this group of 10 nations, commencing in 2007.
I have heard that in the late 1800s, when there was considerable expectation among Christians that the Second Coming was nigh, a group of Bible scholars compiled a list of 75 prerequisites that had to be in place before the Second coming could occur.
Can you explain to me how it is that I saw a group of Jewish men (called Hassidic) actually attending one of the Iranian president’s anti—Semitic meetings this week, and why they were shaking his hand with smiles on their faces? For the life of me I can not figure this out.
Does it describe in the Bible somewhere that Israel will try to give up their land for peace as they are doing today, or does it talk about how others are trying to take it from them as they do today?
Is it your belief that the destruction of Damascus will occur before Gog/Magog? If so will Israel also at the time have great destruction of some kind?
A recent quote from Iranian Pres. Ahmadinejad stated, “…Rest assured that if you do not respond to the divine call, you will die soon and vanish from the face of the earth,”. I wonder if his use of the word “vanish” was unknowingly a prophetic word about the rapture.
The other day, on the radio, I heard a quite passionate denial of the value of (a famous author’s) work and the “Emerging Church”. Because I did not know what it was, I asked around and some said that in the doctrine of this church they taught that since no one could understand the Bible that you could believe what ever your heart led you to believe. I could hardly believe this and so wanted to get your response.
