Very interesting article if you have time to read the whole thing...
You know ST..I do believe the 7 yr tribulation did start Sept/Oct 2008...:)
Well, at least it’s not the usual “December 21, 2012” crap.
I love a good convergence! The Mayans said December 21, 2012, and I’m sure Nostradamus (sp?) has a quatrain pointing to this general timing as well. No more long positions on the stock market for me!
In B4the ZOT?
“No one knows the day or the hour, for that is known only to the Father. But the window...”
Isn’t the Anti-Christ to be revealed at the beginning of the 7 year tribulation period? Don’t think we are quite there just yet!
It’s also a real possibility that He will return on the Feast of Trumpets, or so I’ve been told by Jewish believers.
Jesus Christ Himself does not know when He will return yet we have men who think they can determine this within a six month period. Incredible. Could they post some stock tips while they are at it?
Yeah, this is the sort of thread that brings Free Republic great repute.
The Mayans apparently were in a league comparable to the Chaldeans and the Egyptians when it came to recognizing Celestial events.
I think that your extrapolation of Biblical comments regarding future events is in contradiction with Bible tenets.
In before the Second Coming....
Wait! What happened to December 2012?! I’m planning to max my credit cards and hit my boss with a canoe paddle. I can’t do that and hang around for another three years.
When He doesn’t return according to this timetable, you always have the option to declare that He actually did return “spiritually”, and then you can start your own religious organization.
Women and children hit hardest.
For all those being raptured within the next 20 years, may I have your possessions?
Someone doesn’t know what (s)he is talking about bump.
Isaiah 17:1 - Woe to Damascus. It has been taken away from being a city, it has become a ruinous heap.
If a whole city is destroyed, it can only be one thing - a nuclear bomb.
The fact that Damascus is still standing tells me .. Jesus will come when the Father says it’s time to come and not one day before. I’d rather live as though He might come tomorrow and try to lead as many people as possible to Christ before then.
I’m more concerned about the evil which has come upon America and which continues to grow every day. If you want to check out some history .. you can look up all the American Presidents who did not support Israel .. and then note what happened in America as a result. It was never a good result. Obama has turned his back on Israel - and even today the Isralis protest against him.
I shall always believe that America’s surge into prosperity after WWII was a direct result of our liberation of the Jews in the death camps.
Genesis 12:3 - God is speaking to Abraham, “I will bless them that bless thee and curse them that curseth thee.”
I was just gonna leave a key under the mat, but whatever.
THE BEGINNING OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD WILL PRECEDE THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST BY SEVEN YEARS!
We must subtract seven years from the ONE YEAR WINDOW of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in order to calculate the ONE YEAR WINDOW for the beginning of the Tribulation period.
That would put the ONE YEAR WINDOW for the beginning of the Seven Year Tribulation Period from September 29, 2008 (Rosh Hashanah) until September 18, 2009 (Rosh Hashanah).
This stuff is as bad as Harold Camping.
Within the Seventy sevens, there are TWO abomination that causes desolation.
Maybe Obama is going to desecrate it when he turns 49 next August.
My advice, put away the so called "prophecy resources", get into your bible, and into a sound church. Get yourself well grounded in the basics. If everything goes south on us, you'll need that more than this fever dream stuff.
"What is your only comfort in life and death?"
"A: That I with body and soul, both in life and death, am not my own,
but belong unto my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ;
who, with his precious blood, has fully satisfied for all my sins,
and delivered me from all the power of the devil;
and so preserves me that without the will of my heavenly Father, not a hair can fall from my head;
yea, that all things must be subservient to my salvation,
and therefore, by his Holy Spirit, He also assures me of eternal life,
and makes me sincerely willing and ready, henceforth, to live unto him."
