False Prophecies About the Armageddon:
1) Jesus falsely prophesies DIRECTLY to the high priest (Caiphas) that he would live to see his second coming. Jesus uses the term “coming on the clouds of heaven”. This clearly negates the “coming” as the resurrection but as a return to the earth on CLOUDS, not his return in human form from the dead. Matthew 26:64 & Mark 14:62.
"But I tell you: From now on you will see 'the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power' and 'coming on the clouds of heaven.'" (Matthew 26:64 NAB)
Then Jesus answered, "I am; and 'you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power and coming with the clouds of heaven.'" (Mark 14:62 NAB)
2) Jesus mistakenly tells his followers that he will return and establish his kingdom within their lifetime. Matthew 23:36 & 24:34
Amen, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation. (Matthew 23:36 NAB)
Matthew 16:28 “There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”
A Florida-based company that boasts selling the world's first and only federally approved radio microchip for implanting in humans is now turning its development branch toward "emergency preparedness," hoping to produce an implant that can automatically detect in its host's bloodstream the presence of swine flu or other viruses deemed a "bio-threat." VeriChip Corporation currently sells a small, under-the-skin Radio Frequency Identification capsule, or RFID, that patients can opt to have implanted, containing a number computer-linked to their medical records, enabling doctors with a special reader to access the information even if the patient is unconscious or unidentified. The company boasts its microchip, roughly the size of a grain of rice, is the only such implant approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. But VeriChip has also turned its attention to other uses for the technology, including microchips that be used to tag and log human remains after a disaster and implants the company hopes will be able to warn if their host is infected with the H1N1 swine flu virus, the H5N1 bird flu virus or other pandemic agents deemed to be a "bio-threat." VeriChip is working with a Minnesota company, Receptors LLC, to develop the virus-detection technology.

Explanation: RE: "why blatantly say the bible says the opposite?" ... NO! I'm not! I'm saying make your No#1 A-PRIORI your faith and service to God and in the case of this particular thread I'm saying that an end times Christians vigilance for rapture/armaggedon etc should ALWAYS take at least 2nd place prioritory to that. Not OPPOSITE! Just 2ndry in

I believe I have been very on topic. Yes those were quotes that I copied and pasted. Im not sure why that bothers you. I used them properly per the quoting mechanism in the reply functions.
As for the rest of your reply, I addressed it with my post at the top of the page. As I already knew what you were going to say.
Again, as I have already mentioned in the post in my post at the top of teh page I have already stated I am not passing those opinions off as fact. My intentions are to give an alternative view for others that may read the thread. Not to just take your interpretations of armageddon prophecies as absolute truth, when in fact there is absolutely no consensus within religious scholarship.
Sorry if you have contentions with that. But luckily for me this is a public forum and my points are indeed on topic.

Every time I see something like that, the more I believe. A few years ago I was sure we were at least 50-100 years off, considering things could get alot worse, but now I don't believe we have much time at all.
For example, do you know why I said some were out of context? YOu didn't argue my answers, so I'm assuming no.
2nd, when I started this thread I very clearly advised I didn't want this to degrade into a discussion of the whether or not there is a God or the word is truth (as is usual in these environments). I'm surprised you can't see that there is a big difference between arguing whether or not the word is truth and determining if the timelines/prophesies in it are applicable. These are two completely different conversations.
Perhaps you could think hypothetically and look at the video I posted and the year given being 2010 as the start of tribulation and see if you can find any holes in it. I personally found it to be very intriguing. If you can find holes in it or see problems with it I would love to know. As that is why I created the thread.
