i made this post awhile ago on another board, when i saw this thread i just had to share it:
People are burnt out on hearing "Jesus is coming soon", because they've heard it for decades, despite the contrary. That being said, it only further perpetuates the truth by making men's hearts cold and and hard against God. That being said they refuse to acknowledge a few historic truths:
The Dome of the Rock is in serious disrepair on the temple mount, and has been in iminent danger of collapse for the past few years. Jordanian engineers have been working on it since '05.
Two red heifers have been born in Israel within the past 10 years. (Maybe three?) Both have had blemishes and thus been disqualified, but prior to their appearance, none have been born in Israel for over 2000 years.
The Holy Half-shekel has been around since 1993/4, mentioned in the book of numbers.
Two cornerstones for the third temple have already been made, according to biblical standards, and have been brought to the temple mount every year for quite awhile now, led by the group Temple Mount Faithful.
The Sanhedrin, the group that convicted Christ, was re instituted '06.
Isaiah 17 is more real now than ever, and syria knows this apparently, seeing as how they have moved all their important documents out of their own capitol.
The unimportance of the US on the worldstage is steadily climbing, and will probably end fairly soon, as the oil markets move from the dollar, to the Euro, or some other currency. (China, Russia, Venezula, and Iran are already doing this actively) Thus, making Israel's dependance on the anti-christ much more probable and necessary.
Oh, then of course there's that whole 2012 thing, which some believe may be the 6th seal in the book of revelation.
And then of course you have the 12 Imam around the corner, with iran wanting war to break out in the Middle-East so he can show up. The Al-Mahdi seems to fit the persona of the anti-christ quite nicely.
So, with all this in mind, how can this NOT be the last of the last days?
