been attending a CC locally since ‘94 when I surrendered to Him.
Read LOTS of Chuck Smith and litened to his c2000 series teaching and his 5000 series, have read MANY books he authored and have NEVER heard him predict a date. A season, yes. That Jesus could return at any instant, yes. But never as a date-setter.
Thanks for your view.
I’d have gone to that conference if I could have.
Which season was that? The season marked by the coming of Comet Halley back in 1986?
Go back to 1978. Chuck said stuff like this:
Were the generation that saw the fig tree bud forth, as Israel became a nation again in 1948. As a rule, a generation in the Bible lasts 40 years. . . . Forty years after 1948 would bring us to 1988.
The Lord said that towards the end of the Tribulation period the sun would scorch men who dwell upon the face of the earth (Rev. 16). The year 1986 would fit just about right! Were getting close to the Tribulation and the return of Christ in glory. All the pieces of the puzzle are coming together.
If I understand Scripture correctly, Jesus taught us that the generation which sees the budding of the fig tree, the birth of the nation of Israel, will be the generation that sees the Lords return. I believe that the generation of 1948 is the last generation. Since a generation of judgment is forty years and the Tribulation period lasts seven years, I believe the Lord could come back for His Church any time before the Tribulation starts, which would mean any time before 1981. (1948 + 40 7 = 1981).
Which season is Chuck predicting these days?
