I guess this means Saddam isn' the antichrist after all.

    Just think of all the Jack van Impe $19.95 videos that will now sell for $0.05.

    I never heard JVI claim Saddam is the anti-Christ. And I will continue to pay $19.95 for his films.

    Personally, I think the AC could be OBL or one of his sons. Not the Pope.

    DD,

    I've found that the best way to invest in prophecy books and films is to wait until they've been proven false. Then you can pick them up real cheap at yard sales!

    </font>[/QUOTE]Over the years I've seen lots of prophecy books & predictions come & go.

    Look how many times Hal Lindsey revised or updated "The Late, Great Planet Earth".

    Anyone else recall the huge best-seller (4.8 million copies!) "88 Reasons why the rapture could be in 1988"?

    Jack Van Impe has revised his stated date for the rapture at least twice now (he's on at least his third try).

    And these examples are just scratching the surface.


    Why can't more people take Matthew 24:36 seriously?

    Part of an article by Kenneth Gentry:


    Nero and Nero alone fits the bill as the specific or personal expression of the Beast. This vile character fulfills all the requirements of the principles derived from the very text of Revelation itself. Those principles are particularly abundant in Revelation 13. Notice:

    First, in Revelation 13:18 the number of the Beast is the number of "a man" and that number is "666." Now the usefulness of this number lies in the fact that in ancient days alphabets served a two-fold purpose. Letters functioned, of course, as phonetic symbols. As such, they functioned just as our modern alphabet. But in ancient times letters also served as numerals, in that the Arabic numbering system was a later development of history.

    A Hebrew spelling of Nero Caesar's name was Nrwn Qsr n, e,r, o, n; q, s, r. It has been documented by archaeological finds that a first century Hebrew spelling of Nero's name provides us with precisely the value of 666. Is it not remarkable that this most relevant emperor has a name that fits precisely the required sum? Is this sheer historical accident? But there is more.

    Second, the textual variant. If you consult a Bible with marginal references you may notice something of interest regarding Revelation 13:18. Your reference may say something to the effect: "Some manuscripts read 616." The fact is that the number 666 in some ancient manuscripts of Scripture is actually changed to 616. But why? Was it changed accidentally, or on purpose?

    The difference surely is no accident of sight made by an early copiest. The numbers 666 and 616 are not even similar in appearance in the original Greek--whether spelled out in words or written out as numerals. As textual scholars agree, it must be intentional.

    A strong and most reasonable case may be made for the following probability. John, a Jew, used a Hebrew spelling of Nero's name in order to arrive at the figure 666. But when Revelation began circulating among those less acquainted with Hebrew, a well-meaning copiest who knew the meaning of 666 might have intended to make its deciphering easier by altering it to 616. It surely is no mere coincidence that 616 is the numerical value of "Nero Caesar," when spelled in Hebrew by transliterating it from its more widely familiar Latin spelling.

    Such a conjecture would satisfactorily explain the rationale for the divergence: so that the non-Hebrew mind might more readily discern the identity of the Beast. Such a possibility offers are markable confirmation of the designation of Nero.

    Yep, so far, I think the "proven false" rate is right around 100% or so [​IMG]

    I think there is no doubt that Saddam is an anti-Christ. He certainly is ANTI-CHRIST.

    Yes! Followed in 1989 with the tri-fold pamphlet "89 Reasons I Was Wrong in 1988." And the following year, the one page letter, "90 Reasons I Should Have Kept My Big Mouth Shut In 1988 And 1989." :D

    The Bible is clear: If ANY prophecy that such a person gives is not true, then that prophet is a lying prophet and not to be believed.

    Well, then here's a prophecy, Dr. Bob... I suspect we will get OBL right around the time of the 2004 election. [​IMG]

    And if my prophecy isn't true, I'll leave the Board for good, (in shame & humiliation) LOL. [​IMG]

    The Pope always was, is, and ever shall be the Antichrist, that man of sin, the son of perdition.
    In 1685, the Church of Rome described him as "Our Lord God, the Pope." In 1896, they recognized him as "the visible personification of the Spirit of God." The following official description of the installation of a Pope is given - "He is borne in the pontifical chair, and is placed on the High Altar, a spot consecrated by the actual presence of the body, blood, soul and divinity of a living Christ. He sits on the High Altar, using it as his footstool, and enthroned as King; he is adored as a God in the same manner as is the consecrated wafer, adored by the Cardinal Princes, who kiss HIS FEET WHICH REST ON THE ALTAR OF THE SUPREME. He sits in the Temple of God, showing himself as if he were God." An exact quoatation from II Thessalonians where Paul was describing the man of sin. "We the Archbishops and Bishops of Ireland, prostrate at the feet of your Holiness, humbly offer you our warmest congratulations on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of your ordination to the priesthood ... our thoughts go back to that great event fifty years ago by which your Holiness was taken from amongst men and appointed for men in the things that appertain to God, was made a minister of Christ and a dispenser of His Mysteries, received power over the real and mystical body of our Saviour and became a mediator between God and man -another Christ." Just think of it" "'ANOTHER CHRIST" Those who deny that are those to whom God has sent strong delusion that they should believe the lie and be damned.
