Great! Often people don't care about the biblical prophecies because they didn't see their importance in the whole Bible. About the third of the Scriptures is about the future and the salvation. That is even why Christ came to earth. So, it's a strange thing that Christians, and even other groups, don't care about them.No. The people I mean don't give up, they just don't care.
And yes, I am a christian. I am firmly in this group of people.
The Bible prophecies are a series of visions that EVEN the prophets didn't understand. That is even why the angels / Christ added explanations for these visions. One has to properly analyze these visions to draw conclusions. The best moment to draw these conclusions is when you have enough historical material to back those prophecies. In other words, one needs to be in the right time to discover their true meaning since there is a whole logic based on images that the prophets saw. Hence the numerous false interpretations of the past. So, Daniel didn't say that Prince George was Jesus, but that Christ will soon become someone who happens to be, soon, Prince George, after having been Jesus.Daniel said prince george was jesus? Seriously?
Thanks for your interest. I believe to bring something very different from Linday's. There is a text version, not really finalized. So, improper public consumption.Regarding the videos.
I am interested, it reminded me of Hal Lindsay.
But its so slow. It took me 10 minutes to watch something I could have read in 30 seconds. I'm afraid I am old and old fashioned. Is there a text version that I can just read normally?
Christian eschatology is a somewhat niche interest worldwide.So, it's a strange thing that Christians, and even other groups, don't care about them.
What scriptural authority are you talking about? When Christ gave the Book of Revelation to John he didn't do it for anyone in particular, as far as I know. There certainly are sects using the prophecies to gain followers and their money. It doesn't mean that these prophecies are not worth studying, even alone. So, I have difficulties to grasp your point. How the main message of Christ - salvation - would be almost a taboo?Christian eschatology is a somewhat niche interest worldwide.
Perhaps it is /more/ strange that some sects become hooked on it?
There is scriptural authority for trying to work out the how and when being a hiding to nothing.
Matthew 25:13 We are encouraged to watch. Not to obsess or prioritise it over our Christ-given obligations. I'm sure you as an individual don't do either of those things @JUNE2019 - I'm talking about the movement.I don't see how you could have read 1 hour and 46 minutes of that video in few minutes, or 10 minutes in 30 seconds
No. Individually getting yourself right with God is not the subject here. Only one set of people will be alove at the point of the judgement. Others will be resurrected before judgement but there is then nothing they can do. All any of us can do is live as we are intended to. Get your (speaking generally) life right, don't elevate one section of the whole. Don't fall in to the trap of thinking that the bible as we know it now isn't a political and selective text. Look at the KJV; whole groups think it is THE correct version.How the main message of Christ - salvation - would be almost a taboo?
Mine too- my very favourite. Fascinating insights they provide though.
June2019, here's a heads up - it is hard to see if English is not your first language, but Yithian and PeteS were being sarcastic. They don't like seeing these kinds of threads cycling in every few months claiming to have the good oil on the end of the world. Many of the members here have seen this many times before. Spend some time looking through this website's previous threads and you will see that claims such as yours are a dime a dozen. Sorry to be so direct, but it's true.Cool.
Nobody doubts your sincerity. It's just tiresome and annoying to be given the same old spiel time and again - "But truly I have been given the really real revelation by [insert deity here]!" You haven't. Yours is just another in a long line of very personal responses, none of which have been proven in any way accurate or even useful by my reckoning. By all means share your interpretation of your scriptures, but that is all they are - interpretations of apocalyptic text, the true meaning (if there is one) of which the most highly-educated liturgical scholars haven't been able to uncover with any semblance of clarity. That is the nature of apocalyptic literature.This is precisely NOT self-fulfilling since I show that history confirms the prophecy...and all its details. If it would be self-fulfilling everyone would be already aware of that interpretation since centuries. BUT NONE DID DECODE IT THAT WAY UNTIL NOW.
I watched about 10 minutes of the first video. I could have read the content of that in less than a minute.Thanks for your interest. I believe to bring something very different from Linday's. There is a text version, not really finalized. So, improper public consumption.
But the main point of the full video is to show that the very core of the prophecies is the VISIONS only explanable through IMAGES. I don't see how you could have read 1 hour and 46 minutes of that video in few minutes, or 10 minutes in 30 seconds. Again, what matters is how the images of the symbols used by the future involved characters (from the prophets' perspective) have been engraved in the prophets' memory. There has been a process, and this is this process which can gives us THE solution.
So, the video goes as fast as possible in order for the eyes to see what the prophets saw. One says that an image worths one thousand words. Maybe you could have underestimated the speed of your undertanding through these images compared to the volume of words needed to describe them.
I do agree with you. I lived almost my whole life without being bothered by the end times stuff. What matters is our behavior vis-a-vis others and nature. Nevertheless, I have been pushed, through increasing weird experiences, to study the Bible prophecies, and even predictions from other cultures and peoples. As I was clearly virgin of past religious education, I found keys rather obvious. So, I was not 'prepared' for preconceived answers. And this is where I discovered that having faith in Jesus Christ was absolutely not a problem of owning a Christian membership card (I would say, on the contrary), but being prepared to accept what most of the Christians, and even most of the world, were not ready to admit easily, like it was the case 2,000 years ago. That is even why the gate is so narrow. Many are called, few will be saved. Why?
I don't use the KJV, but the NIV. I show in the video that the four winds of heaven are the four (main) religions of the earth, pointing to the universality of the salvation. That means that anyone, from anywhere, can be saved...provided that one is a good people (chosen) and have faith in God's ways.No. Individually getting yourself right with God is not the subject here. Only one set of people will be alove at the point of the judgement. Others will be resurrected before judgement but there is then nothing they can do. All any of us can do is live as we are intended to. Get your (speaking generally) life right, don't elevate one section of the whole. Don't fall in to the trap of thinking that the bible as we know it now isn't a political and selective text. Look at the KJV; whole groups think it is THE correct version.
And this is leaving aside people who have no connection with christianity, and those who have been repelled by the antics of its followers. Behaving in a way which turns people away? That really will have to be answered for.
