Just wanted to respond to this from your newest thread in reference to this thread:

About you being disappointed. It's not that they're not there. It's that it's maddening to spend hours or even days and weeks (yes that is
literally how long it will take to explain it all) only to hear things like 'It's doesn't matter because the Bible is fake' or 'It's all just
self fulfilled.' I know you didn't do that but those are the two most common objections.
The thing is, most students of Bible prophecy have been studying this for 30, 40, 50 years. I myself have been studying it for 5 years and know enough
that it would take me a couple of weeks to type out. To me, and I apologize for saying this, it simply isn't worth the time.
The European Union, Israel as a Nation, the Islamic coalition, etc., are all precise Biblical predictions mentioned for the end times. Not only that,
but there was a specific
way for them to be fulfilled- not the fact that they would simply exist
. Then there are about 100 prophecies
that have been fulfilled during the last century that no other generation has ever witnessed in the history of man. This isn't even considering the
prophecies fulfilled in antiquity. So, you can see it is an exhausting process to type it all out only to hear things like 'It was self fulfilled.'
Nobody listens so why bother is our logic.
In order for it to be self fulfilled, we would have to assume Europeans, the Jews, Muslims, international associations, inventors (due to the
prophecies regarding technology), and even society (due to the prophecies regarding society) were all in cahoots with each other to make it happen.
And let's be honest, can you really get the Jews, Muslims, and Christians to agree on anything
? No! lol They all have their own end time
prophecies that differ greatly so it makes no sense that these people (not to mention regular citizens, scientists, and inventors) have all been a
part of the conspiracy.
Now do you see why we've kind of given up due to exhaustion and frustration? I could literally list over 1,000 prophecies past, present, and future.
We could turn this thread into the most replied to thread in the history of ATS- I'm not kidding. But after dealing with the close minded for so long
and the naysayers for the sake of naysaying (even when they have to use the most lame brain excuses in the world to explain it all away), we realize
it's not worth the trouble.
There is a book called
Prophecy of the Bible
that collects, dissects, and explains over 1,000 Bible prophecies fulfilled past, present, and future. It uses plain
English and breaks everything down into very easily understood terms. There are hundreds of other books on the same subject and some niche prophecy
books (like books that focus solely on Israel or solely on end times, etc.) I'm not trying to hog any knowledge but I simply lack the energy to
explain the last five painstaking years of personal research (and I would still be called a baby in the field of Bible prophecy) for those who aren't
really interesting in exploring it with an open mind. Again, not saying that's you. I'm saying, I'm exhausted.
