You can twist words to believe whatever you want. You cannot even get the number of days in each year correct. And how much has the bible guessed wrong up until this point. But then again, it's typical bible-basher behaviour to ignore the number-crunching which doesn't fit his/her worldview, even within their own so-called sacred texts.
As I said... what a complete farce!
I suppose you'll defend it because it's your beliefs.... yada yada yada yada yada!!!

Some people have deep seeded issues with religion and childhood.
To me, it's some type of puzzle game and many get it wrong or think they actually know.
Knowing the future isn't always best either. Being prepared can help though. I'm not a bible thumper, but it's still interesting as far as human history and behaviors. Being overly sensitive about it either way is unhealthy.....for most.
That laughing emoticon should be banned.

Anyway, your post is entertaining but the math and "how you came about" is fuzzy, but the "believers" will like it and believe it. That's how it always goes, because it's never about truth but what fits your believe system.
I will say your quote above applies to many aspects of life. Politics, science,etc.
Star for your post and S&F for op.

Just like in the days of Noah and here we are and there you are...
You just validated what Jesus said to the Apostles on Mt. Olive.
If you have no idea what I am talking about look it up.
Yes and Satan's wet dream is people like you with the ideas people like you have. You have been had my brother hook, line and sinker... I sure hope you can swim real good. I will pray for your salvation in the mean time try to educate yourself on logic, facts and reality before it is too late.

Okay. This took me ALL night to find in the Bible to type to you folks :
The Bible predicts Israels reformation, this is widely known.. it was actually predicted twice. read Isaiah 11:11.. not typing it all out
But did you know it was predicted to the PRECISE year!?
I'll show ya..
1st time Israel was conquered by Babylon. They were freed again after 70 years as predicted by Jeremiah.. a Prophet.
and this whole land shall be a desolation and astonishment. and these nation shall serve the king of Babylon [B]seventy years.[/B]
Now.. Both biblical and secular history show Babylon captured Israel in the spring of 606 bc and the capitivy ended exactly 70 years later in the spring of 536bc
Now. read, go find, Ezekiel 4:5 and 4:6
It says, 430 years was the amount of years the Jewish people would be put into exile for their iniquity and sins.... but before hand they were captive under babylon for 70 years. so, this leaves 360. then in Leviticus 26:18 its stated the lord will punish their sins 7 times over. 360 x 7= 2520
so because they didn't repent.. it was timed by 7 and that 2520 was the amount of years the Jews would be without a nation.
now the Hebrew calender was 360 days, NOT 365 days so the 2520 years actually equal 2483 years for us. From here we subtract the amount of years from the end of the Babylonian captivity, which was 536bc as mentioned above... from 2,483.... the answer is 1948ad. The year Israel was reinstated.
think about that.

in mathew 24 it states ,in the future there will be wars, nation will rise against nation and kindom against kingdom ,A WORD WAR,
this never occured in all history until 1914, ie, the reason its called WW1,
it also tells of all the plagues ,earthquakes etc, but it also says the end will come within THIS generation in other words those born before 1914 war ,the end will come before these people die, 1914 until now are 95 years of age,not a large amount of them left.
the oldest person was 116 who died recently, so unless people born before 1914 have special medication the end should come between the next 25 years unless new fountains of youth are discovered,
if this is UNTRUE that means the bible is a lie, so now it is put to the test.
there should be some census in place that shows the amount of people now alive over 95 years? cannot be many,can there?

You left out the part that said,
"see that you are not alarmed, for these things must happen, but it will not yet be the end."
No where does it mention "Word War" or world war for that matter and in fact states this is not the end. If anything a sign of the end it hints there will be a one world religion that all kingdoms will follo
w. We are a long long way from that.

I think it also says God will return one generation after Israel regains it's homeland. Some differ on a generation but it's been 61 years.
