There are certain ways to measure the validity of a prophet. Naturally, you want to see if what they said was true or had or has come true. Another is
What circumstances or contexts in which they spoke or prophesied or predicted the future.
Naturally, it will be easy to tell if the prophets of today's May 21 Rapture will be validated... certainly within just a few more hours.
Throughout history, there have been countless prophets...some have been vindicated...some were seen for the charlatans they were or are.
As for the old Biblical prophets, I'm gonna give them the benefit of a dought and here is why:
- Many of them were persecuted and executed, yet maintained their prophecies until death with absolutely nothing to gain.
- If their beliefs and visions were due to insanity or some other disorder, they were pretty specific about their predictions with a great deal of
detail that has and is coming to pass even now.
- The prophesies they spoke of ...some have already come to pass, which gives validation to the ones yet to come.
For example, John spoke of Jerusalem being "trod under foot" by the Gentile Armies of the latter days. We aren't too far away from that...Just this
week, Obama challenged Netanyahu on the West Bank and Israeli Borders and a Palestinian state...Netanyahu soundly rebuked the idea....I suspect soon
we will see "Peace keppers" helping to establish a Palestinain State with jerusalem being a most controversial point.
Another prophesy is ties in with the above news, jerusalem will be like a "millstone tied around the world's neck"...always being of conflict until
the end...Jesus, John, and a few others brought this one to light.
Oh, and Ezekiel spoke of the Gog-Magog alliance with Tagomarh and his Bands(Muslim West Asia mini states), Gomer(Turkey), Lybia, Persia(Iran),
Ethiopia, Gog(Russia) all coming against israel...that alliance has already been established and is being refined even now... Daniel spoke of it as
the King of the South...south being an alliance based on countries across an expanse south of Israel...the Muslim countries.
Ezekiel spoke of their invasion coming "like a cloud out of the skies and from the North" onto the Golan Heights...Israel stands alone...Where is
the great ally...the USA...just look at the relations between Obama and Israel...would Obama side with Israel in the event of a strike by the newly
liberated Muslim countries which he just pledged to support "whole heartedly?"
There the invaders will be defeated by lightening, hail fire, and brimstone...for the glory of god for all the world to see....and the bodies and
remains will be radioactive...noone can touch except a special team, specially clothed, and the bodies flagged as they are discovered... and they will
be disposed of down wind from Israel and Jerusalem....
Maybe we should look at the re-establishment of Israel...prophesied by a host of Biblical prophets...Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, John...after almost 2000
years it happened in 1947.
How is it that the prophets even knew that some countries would still be in existance and play a key role in the world of today? Egypt, Lybia,
Persia(Iran), Ethiopia, Rome...a re-established Roman Empire..ie The EU.
How did they see the literal symbols that represent the major players in today's world if crazy...for instance...the emergeance of a world power
represented by a harlot with 10 stars around her head riding a beast...a horned beast...ever look at the symbol of reunited Europe...Europa on the
back of the bull Zeus?...coming out of the waters...John said it...just like the statue in front of the EU pParliment Building in Brussels...this
re-emerged empire would be a metaphorical Babylon...Babylon..ie the Tower of babel...just like the Parliment Bldg in brussels...based on a 16th
century painting of the same subject...a stylized unfinished tower and all.
How about the most controversial prophecy and one that seems frighteningly near...the Mark of the Beast...Beast being a world/ global political and
economic system..."no man or woman or child could buy, sell, or trade without the mork." Will it be RFID chips, an infrared light tatoo, a bar
code,..I don't know...but John saw it almost 2000 years ago...quite a coincidence. Pretty specific too...Nostradamus has recieved more praise with
less specific predictions... but none as spectacular as that one.
Maybe a global currency...a host of nations is pushing just such an economic policy as the dollar falters...John, Jesus, Daniel all were dead on
Perhaps the more generalized topics of corruption in the legal and business fields..."when no justice would go forth" as Habakuk spoke of in the
Or the idea of "mens hearts failing them" from cosmic events being seen in the skies...maybe a too close approach of a heavenly body, comet,
Maybe the decline of Babylon, the emergeance of Medes-Persia, Greece, then Rome, and finally a re-emerged Roman Empire... Danial did so... abot 2500
Wecould go on, but what's the point... books have been written with such documentation. Either you will do some research and believe or refute such
notions. I suggest we keep a vigilant eye on world events...and let tommorow make up your mind...until then it will be a matter of faith...either in
God or science.
I choose God.
