Ok, I get it that you think that Jesus was talking about the generation that he was living in. I disagree, with your limited overview, but I get it.

What I don't get is why are you busying yourself in trying to stir up others who don't believe as you? Are you a new Christian? Do you not know this topic has been looked at for about 2000 years, and you aren't going to settle it on FR?

Instead of trying to stir up an untenable battle among believers, why not find a topic or mission that builds up the body? It's one thing to take a stand for what you believe and be able to give an answer for what you believe. It is entirely another thing to try to generate arguments for arguments sake.

Galatians 5:26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

I didn’t know the truth was foolish questioning.

EXACTLY! Thank you!! I have never seen such smug condescension. Some people believe the rapture will happen before the tribulation, some believe it will happen 3.5 years into the tribulation, and others believe it won't happen until the tribulation is over. It's the latter group who ridicule those in the first group, and I don't get it. David Jermiah is currently doing an excellent teaching on the book of Daniel, and in his messages "Tribulation 1" and "Tribulation 2", he explains very clearly why he believes the rapture will happen before the tribulation. As far as those who believe we will be here on earth throughout the Tribulation, I say, "Go for it!" Eventually we will find out who was right and who was wrong, and I suspect when that time comes, no one will care.
