The following Question and Answer was taken from a Yahoo Club called
Parousia. Hopefully it will help explain in more detail a few common questions that any
skeptics might have. I really don't know how much proof is enough. Nevertheless,
I continue to provide it for them...
We are now at the doorstep of our eternity Prophecy is being fulfilled daily.
Israel has finally left Lebanon and the war of Ezekiel 38 is at hand.
Nice link, but I hardly think we are in the tribulation now.
I don't think Arafat is the antichrist. I think there will be no doubt or argument
about who the antichrist is once he reveals himself. If we are in the tribulation,
where are the two witnesses of Rev.11.
I did not say that Arafat was the anti-christ. Satan is the antichrist. Arafat is
the beast of Rev.13.He is the one that an image will be made of by the false prophet.
There is a major difference in these three. The beast and the false prophet will already
be burning in the Lake of fire when Satan is cast into it After The Millennium. They will
be there 1000 years before Satan. This is plainly stated in Revelation.
As for the two witnesses. If they were hear now what makes you think you would know it.
Will the church be here for it?
You may see it start but you will not be
here during the worst of it. And certainly
you wont be here at the same time Satan is. He will only be revealed to the
non-believers after the rapture.
When will Christ Return?
Please refer to the 70th week timeline
included on this site. Keep close watch on the Feast of Tabernacles in October 2000.
Why do you believe it will happen this year? And please prove it scripturally.
Let me see if I can try this another way. Do you know why Noah's ark can't be
found on mount Ararat? Or any mountain for that matter. At least conclusively where
it is common knowledge to the world. Jesus the God of heaven wants people to have Faith.
If you could prove conclusively that the ark was there and could touch it you would
have proof period of God's existence.
We know he is there and that the Bible is his word. Therefore I set out to do just that.
I tried to prove his existence and who he is conclusively:
That is Jesus Christ the Son of God.
I have used the numbers in Daniel 12 interlaced with the last seven year period to show
that the agreement on May 4,1994 was the start of the seven year period. No matter how
you look at it Sept.13,1993 to Sept.13,2000 when the agreement is supposed to expire
is also seven yrs. It says in Daniel 9:27 that the agreement will be confirmed with many
( RABIN ) for seven years. There are no agreements period with Rabin after Nov.4 1995.
Why? because he was assassinated. If you add seven years to the end of his death you still
arrive at the year 2002. But you must follow a timeline supplied in Daniel 9:27 in order
to get the start date. Once you have the start date all you know is that the 7 year period
has begun. God said you will not know the hour or the day...That is correct. Well we are more than six years deep into the seven year period and still no major war.
Israel though may have a different opinion, they have went through hell these past six
years. They have lost land to Arafat and more recently to Lebanon. At last count you have
approximately 9 months to the end of the 70th week and a war must happen, with Syria being the start of
it. Syria and Israel at this time are both preparing for War. Syria lost its bargaining chip when Israel withdrew from Lebanon and is now trying to keep
Hezbollah and the Refugee Palestinians ready to keep pressuring Israel over a little parcel of land called the Sheba
farms. Ezekiel 38 says that he will put hooks in his jaws and draw him out.
This is certainly what will happen. Syria has lost all it's perceived moral power to continue war from Lebanon and now either has to get
Hezbollah, the refugee Palestinians, or finally at last themselves to continue
fighting. What Israel said will probably happen. Hezbollah will pressure the Sheba Farms and Israel will strike
this time all targets even those of Syria. War will then be inevitable.
I have also shown who the players are that fit into the scenario by interpreting Old
Testament prophecy. Arafat who is the beast has very little time left for a negotiated peace. He is only given
42 months.His time will end on or before August 20, 2000.
An image will have to be made of him by the false prophet and worshipped. The false
prophet doesn't receive his power until Satan returns to earth. Satan can't be revealed
until the rapture of the church:2nd Thes. chap 2. The Beginning of the Great Tribulation coincides with the War with
Syria. When Zion begins to travail the children will be delivered, Isaiah 66.Daniel 12 shows this
also. There is one group of people missing here. When the great tribulation happens the dead will be raised and all the people found written in the
book of life. Only the evil DEAD will be raised ,not the evil LIVING. This means that all
non-believers who are alive at the time of great tribulation will be left here on earth to
receive there punishment. Read Zephaniah chap.2 verses 1-2.
I hope some of this helps. Ephraim
Ephraim....don't bet the farm on it. No chance.
