SharonA Bible prophecy (189* d) RE: Bible prophecy 13 Oct 09


Little Hawk also said: "Jesus would not have had to be clairvoyant or to be 'the Son of God' to make such a prediction. He would have just needed a good understanding of the politics of his time. The Jews and Romans were clearly on a collision course that was going to soon lead to total war...and the Romans, given their superb military organization and strength, would undoubtedly win that war in the end."

Likewise, a good understanding of the politics of his time and of the history of the region would've been all that was needed to predict the eventual fall of Rome and Constantinople into the decadence/weakness/infighting that left them open to attack from barbarians.

I agree with LH that extrapolating Bible predictions to the present day and trying to twist them around to fit modern countries is not going to give one the likely meaning of those predictions. Far better to study the times in which those predictions were made and the times that went before them (not after them!).
