Many 20th and 21st century scholars say that the Exodus of the children of Israel out of Egypt did not happen as there is allegedly no historical evidence in Egypt that it happened. Is that true? Was Rameses II the Pharaoh of Exodus? Was the Exodus in the 13th or 15th century? Which makes the most sense? Which date has the most biblical and historical proof?
A written article of related interest is titled "When was the Exodus? Did it Happen?" URL: http://www.cogwriter.com/when-was-the...
Albert Edwards of the French multinational banking and financial services firm Societe Generale stated "Equity investors are facing the four horsemen of the apocalypse thundering towards them." He pointed to four reasons. He also pointed to the destruction to Pompeii when Mt. Vesuvius exploded. Another financial writer warned of the "Four Horses Of The U.S. Debt Apocalypse." Is there anything related to debt the Bible warns end time people should run from?
Does the Bible teach predestination? John Calvin was a 16th century Protestant Reformer who had his views on it. What is five point TULIP Calvinism? Does the Bible teach this or is TULIP Calvinism in conflict with scripture? Is it something that a God of love would come up with? What about the 'age to come'?
In April and September 2018, there were meetings involving top leaders of Russia, Iran, Syria, and Turkey. Some Protestant prophecy watchers have suggested that the meeting of these leaders could be a prelude to the what is known the Gog and Magog war as discussed in Ezekiel 38. Some have claimed that this battle must take place before 'Armageddon' and before Jesus returns. Some have wondered if the Gog/Magog war is Armageddon.
According to the Jewish 'Seder Olam Rabbah' the period from sunset 9 September 2018 to 29 September 2019 is the year 5779 Anno Mundi (age of the world). However, the Jewish Encyclopedia, secular scholars, and modern Jewish experts have all claimed that the count it off between 164 to 200 plus years. Are we closer to the year 5990 than 5779 since Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden? Why would the Seder Olam be off by so much? Does any of this have anything to do with deceit and pointing to the false 'messiah' Simon Bar Kochba?
A recent headline was "Is Trump Pushing Germany to Russia?" There have been comments by German and Russian leaders that they have aligned interests that Donald Trump opposes and need to take financial, military, and other steps to assist Europe. Russia and the EU (European Union) still support the Iran nuclear deal, Paris Climate accords, and the World Trade Organization, despite Donald Trump's actions against them. Have there been comments to replace the USA's SWIFT system by the Russians and Germans?
Did mega-Protestant Pastor Andy Stanley really say you should not use Old Testament prophecies to support Jesus' Messiahship? Did he also claim that there was no Bible until the fourth century? Did he also teach against the Ten Commandments? Did Jesus, Peter, Paul, Apollos, and Philip use Old Testament prophecies to prove that Jesus was the Messiah?
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said new US sanctions would be a declaration of economic war. Iran, North Korea, China, Europe, and Turkey are also upset about USA sanctions and tariffs. A Turk asserted "Somebody must find a solution and stop the USA." The BRICS nations see US sanctions and tariffs as helpful to their objectives to trade without the USA. Are "unintended consequences" of USA policies threatening the current Anglo-American world order and leading to a New World Order?
Heat records were set in over 118 locations during the Summer of 2018. Europe, Africa, Asia, and North America all had major heat waves. The hottest recorded rain also occurred in the Summer of 2018. Beyond heat related deaths and discomfort, were there other impacts on flora, fauna, and the environment. Does God control the weather? Does God promise good weather for obedience and warn of fire and other weather problems for disobedience? Is what has been happening consistent with the beginning of sorrows and troubles Jesus spoke about?
Lawyer, media consultant, and lawyer Jim Rickards wrote an article titled "Get Ready for the '100 year flood.' He mentioned the four horsemen of the apocalypse and suggested that the one related to famine may have to do with food inflation. After going through natural, political, and modern threats to humanity, he essentially calculated that the probability of one or more massive negative events hitting within the next 10 -30 years at 100%.
Was there any connection between prophesies of the Messiah and the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 70 A.D? On the 9th day of the fifth month on the Hebrew calendar, Jews fast because of the destruction of that Temple and other events that have befell the Jews. Did you know that the Jews tie the birth of the Messiah in with the month of Av? They also tie positive events from then to 'Rosh Hoshana' in the month of Tishri. Is there any relationship to Jesus and the first feast in Tishri? Did Jesus' prophesies related to the Temple come to pass?
