No it isn't a fulfillment of prophesy.The prophesies have already been fulfilled. Gen 13:15 is interpreted by Gal 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 2Co 1:19-20 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and ...

What is the Biblical basis against being able to predict the date of the end of the world? Here are a couple of more verses. Acts 1:6-7 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, ...

As a former Jehovah's Witness I can advise that they have settled on the date 1914 as the year Jesus Christ returned. Their eschatology is very confused because of this. While the Bible clearly states that Christ's return is visible (Matthew 24:30; Hebrews 9:28; Revelation 1:7), the Jehovah's Witnesses state that it's invisible, and that he took up his ...

I will offer two compatible interpretations based on the theology of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) and the churches that accept his theology. 1. "Quickly" means "definitely" Here is how Swedenborg interprets the same phrase in Revelation 1:1: Things which must shortly take place. This symbolically means that they must surely come to pass to keep the ...

"Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia" - the fear of the number 666. The Bible Rev. 13:15-18 requires the reader to interpret: "Here is Wisdom, Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast." and the questioner is asking about any possible interpretations, such as obtained by adding letter values or gematria. That includes the catholic church ...

I'm seeking the answers from the doctrine that Revelations should not be taken literally--that it is somewhat metaphorical. I presume these seven spirits to be a metaphor, but for what? Based on this request, I'll offer an interpretation based on that of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), who wrote not one, but two major exegeses of the book of ...

Since 666 became the accepted number in Revelation 13:18, that is the number on which the various Christian denominations and groups base their interpretation of the prophecy. Speaking for my own denomination, our primary theologian, Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), in his interpretation of the number 666 departed from the most prevalent schools of thought ...

Actually this is not a new discovery as Irenaeus (born 130 AD) argued that the number was 666 and was aware some manuscripts had 616 in error. Anyway, in answer to how a different number might impact the various views that people take on Revelation I will try to summarize for you. Historicist From prior to AD 200 the 666 was assumed correct (versus 616) ...

It could happen, definitely could happen and we, Catholics pray for the coming of the Kingdom every day. We also pray that Christ will return every day (hopefully not in Winter). And these are two different and similar things. The Kingship of God is that we live with Christ as our sovereign. The Kingdom is what Jesus was preaching about while He built His ...

The four eschatological viewpoints described are quite different and to a large extent mutually exclusive. Furthermore each viewpoint has adherents with different concepts of what that viewpoint actually describes, so it hard to be too definitive. Some history of the passage would help put them in perspective. It is generally accepted that Isaiah chapters ...

A Catholics Answer Isaiah's prophetic warning was for Judah and Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:1 It was fulfilled with the Babylonian captivity. It was again fulfilled when the Romans toppled Jerusalem. Isaiah's warning is for all God's children, even today. Do not allow your gluttonous desire for things of this world kill your desire to worship and serve the LORD ...
