    It seems today that there are a great deal of so called prophecy experts, especially in the chrismatic movement, that build their entire ministry off of sermons and lectures revealing "hidden prophecies" that were made unknown to man until these last days.

    Of this group there is a very large set of teachings that supposedly reveal America having a major part in the prophecies of the Revelation. Please list some of these "prophecies" if you have come across them and then give your opinions on them [​IMG]

    I have heard for the most part that the prophecy of the Eagle & the Bear, Gog & Magog, are symbolic of Russia's & the United States' involvment in the affiars of Israel in the Tribulation Period.

    Several university statistical studies have been done. They continually reveal the same thing: Prophecy "experts" who make predictions have a success ration roughly the same rate as change. In other words, they are as successful as a magic eight ball.

    The best prophecy expert in the Bible was Jesus. He said that no ones knows the day or hour of his coming, not even himself. If Jesus ain't worried about it, neither should I be.

    lol I can see it now, perry stone consults the magic 8 ball, predicts Israel will sign a treaty with Turkey tomorrow!

    (sounds about what they do, sadly)

    Speaking of which, Perry Stone seems to be at the forefront of "hidden prophecies" though he says that his studies come from the traditional jewish and early christian texts he actually gets his information from Kabbalah writings.

    Perry Stone is a fruitcake. And he is HQ'd right here in Cleveland, TN.

    I have no use for him, his "theories", or his propaganda.

    In Christ,

    Yes I agree, there is a great deal of Oriental religious doctrines and teachings in perry stone's teachings.

    very Gnostic. Almost makes one Agnostic with such confusion and mysticism

    I was watching a rerun of Unsolved Mysteries just yesterday and they had a segment about The Bible Code by Michael Drosnin. What little I watched seemed like a bunch of malarky to me. I put it on the same scale as The DiVinci Code.
    I would also put Michael Drosnin in the "fruitcake" category.

    The Bibel code is tripe: It's not fit to line a cow's stomach.
    Delly, remember that "unsolved Mysteries" episodes are all rerun-syndicated. The episodes are 10 years old or more. Robert Stack, the host, passed away several years ago. The "Bible Code" was big hype when it first came out, and died a pretty quick death thereafter.

    Yes John, I know they are kinda old, but I still love a good mystery and I'd rather watch a rerun of those that this reality tv we have today. I watch Unsolved Mysteries or City Confedential on my lunch break. I watched Unsolved Mysteries from the time it came on until Robert Stack died. Now I watch it in syndication.

    I must lead a shelter life because I had never heard of The Bible Code until yesterday's show. I don't remember seeing that segment before.

    I don't believe the fruitcakes ever give up. They may fade from view for a while, but they always come back. You know it's hard to get rid of a "fruitcake". [​IMG]

    The Bible code did not die, it, like any parasitic virus, simply mutated into another form. Today it is in a new rendition of its original form, Kabbalah. All the stars of hollywood who used to follow scientology are following the ancient pagan gnostic jewish hybrid of Kabbalah. It was the origin of the Bible code and is today using God's holy word to try to reveal secrets about their personal lives. It seeks to make the Bible the new psychic hotline!
