Good post. There’s an interesting study in theology regarding our Lord’s lament as He looked over Jerusalem when they received Him not. It very well concludes that Israel could have received Him, thereby ushering in the Millenium at that time. Had that happened, a number of things may have occurred, but Prophecy still would have been fulfilled, just in a different fashion.

That's an interesting thought, but it would seem to me to thwart the timelines set in prophesy. One of the pictures drawn in Genesis is the Earth was created in 6 days and rested the seventh. If a day is as a thousand years to God, we would be talking 6k years of history, then the Millennium. (One reason to reject evolution and believe the Word literally). God went to the trouble to even state a day was an evening and a morning. The Jews observe a day starting in the afternoon because of this.

It would be an interesting study, however, but I still have to believe God knew Israel would reject Jesus, and therefore the next few thousand years of history were in the bag.

Even for non- believers, that would have thrown Nostradamus off his numbers. LOL Then there is those Mayan calender thingies.

Nah, I think I'll stick to plan "A".

There are endless "What if's" you could consider, but I have to trust God that He already knew the outcome before we were even created. What if Jesus asked the Father to let this cup pass from Him and the Father said........"OK". That would have set everything from Genesis on up as gobbelty gook. This is the main reason I believe Jesus was the only "perfect lamb" ever born. No one could have died in our stead and took away our sin, other than Jesus. If even one person could live a sinless life, then Jesus would not have had to die on the cross. There is no flesh that is sinless other than Jesus. It had to be Him.

I suppose if the Jews accepted Jesus then, that would have also thrown the numbers off in Daniel.
