to deniers, I would suggest that the return of Israel as a nation in 1948 is strong evidence of the truth of Bible prophecy. never in history has a people in exile returned to its land of origin and be revived.
as I recall, when the Berlin Wall and the iron curtain fell, there was optimistic talk of a peaceful age-of-aquarius New World Order. there have been times in our history (League of Nations, UN) where there was confidence of world peace. hasn't happened.
thanks for the research.

True, and I think the one thing to watch out for will be a new Plague or virus that manages to wipe out significant amounts of the population. That would truly be fightening.
Not to be breeding paranoia, but this was on the news tonight:
Deadly Drug-Resistant Bacteria Found in L.A.
Not just found, but spreading, rapidly.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such an informative and, I believe, important thread.
A great read and your responses have been very respectful and well thought out. Other than others have been.
I can't help but wonder how many of these debunkers have ever even read The Book. Peace be with you.

Impore all of you to do some research and see if you can link more prophecies to current events, or find evidence to refute them!
Are you serious? It's not anyone's job to disprove the story in the OP that you find convincing. You need to establish the evidence that these extremely general, self-fulfilling "prophecies" have any validity.
After reading this thread, I Impore all of you to do some research and see if you can link more prophecies to current events, or find evidence to refute them!
I always welcome intelligent and civil discouse - if you have your own theories or thoughts, please share them!

Personally, I am not in agreement with you due to the ambiguity of bible text, but S&F for the great effort and thought provoking debate.
I watched a show last night about end time prophecies and they pointed out (in addition to what many have said about the vagueness of many of the "signs") that there is a self fulfilling element to the prophecies.
In other words, there are people who believe in these prophecies going out of their way to ensure we actually do have war in the Middle east. LOTS of people trying with all they have and are to make a war in that area.
People who believed in the Bible MADE that happen. Its not like it randomly and spontaneously happened all on its own.
Using that as proof of the truth of Biblical prophecy is like my opening a door and then saying "whoa! did you see that door open?" and pretending a ghost did it.
You would be surprised how many of these debunkers are more familiar with the teachings of Jesus and The Book than some "true Believers" are.
In fact the reason some of us dont hang out on Sunday with some of you is because we ARE familiar with the teachings of Jesus, and know that what you are doing aint it.
You forgot to add the part where you are judging people you dont know, and calling them names and hating them in long public rants.
Jesus LOVES when you do that.
I know this was directed at the person you quoted, but to be honest, you did insult his beliefs, and in a sense, you both were in the wrong. As I mentioned above, he was judging you based off your fruit, and what he saw was you attacking his beliefs, it shouldn't be a surprise to see him get defensive.
Read your posts, and read mine or really, anyone elses in the thread, and you tell me which ones seem bitter and hate filled.
