Just a random thought: Jesus said to “learn” the parable of the fig tree. “Learn” from the Blue Letter Bible: μανθάνω Transliteration: manthanō Root Word (Etymology): Prolongation from a primary verb, another form of which, matheo, is used as an alternate in certain tenses Outline of Biblical Usage: *to learn, be apprised *to increase one's knowledge, to be increased in knowledge *to hear, be informed *to learn by use and practice *to be in the habit of, accustomed to “If you love Me, you will keep my commandments,” said Jesus. This “learn the parable of the fig tree” sounds like a commandment, to me.

I mentioned in another thread that a pastor I listen to said, basically, that we can’t know the time of Christ’s return; that the only sign we are given is the abomination of desolation. I would say that Jesus teaching the parable of the fig tree indicates that there is more to look for than just the AoD. One might argue that Israel being a nation isn't really a sign of the end times, except that the parable of the fig tree indicates that the return of Israel to the land IS a sign.


This pastor said something like, “a thousand years ago, people thought they were in the end times.” That may be true, but there was not a…

I guess I'm late to the party.


  1. Been busy and couldn't keep up with all the prophecy videos/articles on the web.

  2. Growing caution based on reflection about the inputs in my life.


I have a list of teachers I enjoy, subscribing to their video channels or blogs. Each one I could say there was something or another I don't agree with, or at the very least, am not sold on. So that's not a problem, when I hear something that makes me literally think "um, no. I don't agree with that."


The problem is that there's a weird kind of birth pang activity in prophecy content.


First, there's the explosion of anti-rapture anti-prophecy content from Christian preachers and teachers I…

A lot of great comments here. You said a lot, all of it really great points. One thing I thought while reading your comments, people have put man on too high a pedestal. I see what you mean about "Camp Amir". Personally, I am not a fan. I have heard some really poor teachings from him. More than most. Also, he frequently says he has intel, some breaking news about something that his intel told him about, and it is ALWAYS a huge nothingburger. Nobody ever calls him out on it. When I mention something incorrect he says to one of my Christian friends who "follow" him, they get upset and go into defense mode, instead of Berea…

Regarding a generation (I apologize that I have no references here but I'm sure that I can get them if any interest) my father-in-law had taught a Sunday School class on Prophecy and discussed different interpretations of the word generation throughout the Bible. He explained that depending on where in the O.T. it was found it was understood as 70 years; 70 + 10 (80), 100 years or 120 years.

Thank you so much for addressing this. God bless you brother.

Has anyone ever heard that since Israel did not reclaim Jerusalem until 1967, that that may be the date that the generation begins in correlation with the fig tree? I can't remember where I heard it, but I've often wondered about it.
