If you are a Bible thumper, then you will have to believe that the "last days" all began the day that Jesus ascended into heaven. The disciples
believed that Jesus return was to be very soon. His ministry lasted 3 years, and then the tribulation of 7 years and then his return. That adds up to
10 years. Jesus told his disciples that some of them standing beside him would not die, but would see his return in his kingdom.
No. A "Bible Thumper" like myself
would not get their theology from evilbible.org.
Who's wristwatch was counting the "last days"? God's or man's? Since God made the declaration I will take it that God was using HIS wristwatch.
Just like God said in the garden to Adam. "In the DAY
that you eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shalt surely
God's "days" are 1,000 human years. God is an eternal deity. 1,000 years to God is just a "day" to the Eternal One. What's 1,000 human years
when you are outside the space-time dimension, hell, what is 10,000 years when you are outside the space-time dimension? What's 1,000,000 years when
the space-time dimension with a single spoken sentence, "Let there be!"?
Secondly, the Tribulation didn't last 7 years. Christ said "when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel stand in the
Holy Place...." that would only be the mid-point of the Tribulation. And did you notice that? Christ gave an insight into nationwide coverage on
CNN in the future. He said "When YOU SEE
.." No Jew in Christ's day could "SEE" this happen in the Holy of Holies of the temple.
In fact, only one man, (High Priest), on one day of the year, (Day of Atonement), and after great ritual preparation could enter the Holy of Holies.
But Christ said "When YOU SEE
..." meaning there would be a camera broadcasting the man of sin sit in the holy og holies and declare
himself to be God so all could "SEE
" this take place.... then run from the city because sudden destruction would be coming on Jerusalem.
And lastly, precision is the key to reading the Bible. Jesus said there would be some who would not taste death before they "SAW
Jesus coming in the kingdom. John "SAW
" it in a vision sitting on an island called Patmos in 95 AD, just before he wrote the book of
Revelation. Jesus did NOT
say He would come in His kingdom before all the apostles were dead. Jesus said not all His apostles would
die before they SAW
Him coming in His kingdom.
Your scholarship is piss-poor. Don't get theology from pathetic sites such as evilbible.org and you won't make these mistakes in the future. Take
