    I wondered how long it would take for someone to start this discussion. It has no theological significance though I see that the pre-tribbers are already busy.

    A few numbers on recent earthquakes:

    China, 1976, 255,000 dead.
    China, 1920, 200,000 dead.
    China, 1927, 200,000 dead.
    Japan, 1923, 143,000 dead.

    Good point, OldRegular. Here is a list of natural disasters, mainly within in the past few hundred years. Just think of how many more are not listed from thousands of years ago when there weren't near as many people on the earth as today -

    www.scaruffi.com/politics/disaster.html

    By the way, I started this thread so that hopefully premillers won't be talking in the Current News forum about how this latest disaster is related to the end of this age, but will talk about it here so I won't be tempted to argue with them and drag threads off topic in the Current News forum.

    I think Jesus said that some of the apostles would not pass away before all those things were fulfilled. The generation that would not pass away was the one Jesus was speaking to.

    Did this happen before or after the transfiguration?

    Did this happen before or after the transfiguration?

    Did this happen before or after the transfiguration?

    Did this happen before or after the transfiguration?

    Did all of this happen before or after the transfiguration?

    I think unless you have rejected a literal interpretation of the Bible and are going on some private, personal interpretation, that you are going to have a hard time showing that all these things happened before the transfiguration.

    Why not? :D You are the one who said this was fullfilled at the transfiguration.

    So, you are saying that all these things that were listed by Christ occurred before the transfiguration? When was the temple destroyed?

    Then please tell me how this prophecy could have been fullfilled at the transfiguration without saying that Jesus was a false prophet. Would you like to revise your interpretation?

    Jesus said all these things would occur before they saw him coming and before the end of the age:

    If all these things did not happen before the transfiguration, then for you to hold that this is the event referred to here is to call Jesus a false prophet. Again, I think you ought to rethink your interpretation.

    In other words, prophecynut, you just twist the Scriptures to fit into your theology, regardless of how convoluted your theology is, eh?
