View Full Version : Will this Generation see the End of the Age? (merged)

Agree with the statements around the beginning of 2011 busting out of the prophetic gates on the race track. Those storms you guys in the US are experiencing and we in Australia copping unprecedented flooding and one of the biggest cyclones to ever hit the country is about to strike at northern QLD. Add to the wild weather patterns the worldwide political unrest and other birth pangs and we are witnessing something incredible. The rapture index is high and I note that though it isn't at it's highest point, it does appear to be (on average) higher than the previous years. Sure it can change throughout the year but seeing its average is comparatively high so early in the year is remarkable.

Sorry MandyMonster, there are one too many "o"'s in your post. Somewhere there's a rule against too many "o"s. Give me a while, I'll find it! :preach

I had actually posted a thread about this. I think one of the moderators dispelled the statement by Hal as that we are not that generation. So now I'm thoroughly confused.
If anyone can shed some light my way, I'd be most grateful.
There will be a generation that will see the Rapture. Hal thinks we are that generation.
Your thread deals specifically with the interpretation of the parable of the fig tree meaning that the generation to see Israel reborn will of necessity live to see the Rapture. Some people hold to that interpreation and some do not. Even someone who doesn't agree to that interpretation can still think we are "that generation" based on other birth pangs we see developing now.

Big White Huey dustoff ... it will be so cool! (I wounder if it will be to the tune of Flight of the Valkyre or Invitation)
You certainly paint a picture.
But given that it happens in the twinkling of an eye, I've always envisioned a Star Trek-style beam-up. :lol2

Such profound times in which we live. Amazing to see the word of God being fulfilled on a daily basis. Certainly it is closer each day.

One thing I was so happy to hear him finally address was how Israel could finally tear down the wall and be living in peace prior to Gog/Magog. He seems to agree with a growing number of prophecy scholars that correction will one day soon be forthcoming for the enemies of Israel that are circling like a flock of starving buzzards. (Psalms83/Isaiah 17) The last two gaps in the circle are in the process of being closed (Egypt and Jordan) and one could easily imagine that a serious miscalculation by one or more of the demon seeds might not be far behind. Buckle up boys and girls, it could be an awfully bumpy ride. :rapture first or :nuke of Damascus, that seems to be the question.
Good point about the gaps being closed, having Israel completely surrounded by enemies.
But no worries, Father God is ALWAYS in control! Amen, praise Lord Jesus!

I think Hal is off by saying that we "are" the last generation. I very much respect him, but he is date framing, which this board does not promote. Truth is, we dont know. All we know is that we are seeing more and more contractions, and the pains are getting more and more intense. But we dont know how intense it will get before the Rapture happens. It could be that there will be a lull. Now, it doesnt appear that way, but events transpire so fast now, it's just impossible for us to know. Only God knows.
I tire of hearing that we "ARE that last generation", as if these interpreters have the final say when things will happen and when things wont. Since when do they have the mind of God? Who are they that God listens to their counsel?
This is why the Fig Tree interpretation put out by Hal and others is dangerous. What happens if we are still here after their "time frame of things to happen" passes by? How badly will our credibility as Christians be hurt? It's no different than how Herald Camping's reputation will be destroyed on May 22nd this year when the rapture DOESNT happen, and the end of the world DOESNT come 5 months later.
Now, I say all this with a caveat: We ***could be*** the last generation. But a gross misunderstanding of the Fig Tree in Matt 24:32 is causing many to believe we "are" or "must be" the last generation. The way things are going, yeah...it looks like we very well may be the last generation. But we dont know this for sure. We cant. Why not just leave it at, "we may be", because isnt that the truth?
I know others here disagree with me, but I digress :hat

What does it matter? Just trust God and be good to people. Period.
