Re: What IS prophecy?

You mean like in revelations where they talk about insects that have metal armor....

Do you mean Revelation 9?
And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. (verses 7-10)

Doesn't sound like modern weaponry to me.

- but the evil adulterous generation shall not receive the sign because they are unable to start good relationship with God.

Matthew 16:
1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas.

Red sky, red sky. Same sign, different interpretation.

An honest discussion is more of a peer review than a pep rally. My toughest critics here are the people who agree with me. -- ringo
