    you'v (and others have) said many times, many prophesies stated in the bible have come to pass. but i can never seem to get an example from anyone. so im looking for specific examples....the verse and the event you believe to be the fulfilled prophesy. cause i tend to think its all a matter of interpretation, one can convice himself of anything if he's trying to.

    Well Bush was reelected so I would guess he will bring about the end of the world.

    I'll try and find the stupid ones I've been given. They're somewhere in this forum. I just dismissed them because the next verse always proved without a doubt the preceeding verse was talking about israel, not jesus, if that helps.

    I have give examples often on a number of my posts. You might find Ezekiel chapters 37,38, and 39 of some interest. Todays Israel is spoken of there, and the future events that will occur in Israel as well. This prophecy is understood by many Christians to be an end time prophecy, and does not require any hard or tortured interpretations to come to that conclusion. This is just one of many prophecies that are to be found in the Bible. The future of the world is recorded in the scriptures, in detail.

    Very good post Disarm. What's funny is when they ask for evidence and you put it before them, and then they come back and say, I don't see any evidence. Just a grade school study of the Bible reveals the volumes of fulfilled prophecies, yet so many turn away, from what is so obvious.

    So Disarm, when was Israel rejected by Israel? When was Israel betrayed for 30 pieces of silver? When did Israel die for the sins of the world? When was Israel betrayed by a friend? When was Israel God? When was Israel born in Bethlehem? When did Israel teach in parables? When was Israel called Immanuel? When was Israel completely innocent? When did Israel intercede between God and man? When did Israel come to Zion? When did Israel defeat death? When did Israel grow up in Nazareth? When was Israel both God and man? When was Israel the Son of God? When was Israel a "Stumbling Stone" to Israel? When was Israel born of a virgin? When was Israel sorrowful because of Israels unbelief? When did Israel appear as an ordinary man? When was Israel buried and borrowed a rich man's grave? When did Israel freely lay down it's life to save mankind?
    The list could go on, but if you think this describes Israel, you must be reading a different Bible than the one I read.

    If you don't call this a fulfilled prophecy, I don't know what else:

    In the Book of Daniel, from the rebuilding of Jerusalem to the martyrdom of Christ, seventy weeks are appointed; for by the martyrdom of Christ the sacrifice is accomplished and the altar destroyed.[1] This is a prophecy of the manifestation of Christ. These seventy weeks begin with the restoration and the rebuilding of Jerusalem, concerning which four edicts were issued by three kings.
    [1 See Dan. 9:24.]

    The first was issued by Cyrus in the year 536 B.C.; this is recorded in the first chapter of the Book of Ezra. The second edict, with reference to the rebuilding of Jerusalem, is that of Darius of Persia in the year 519 B.C.; this is recorded in the sixth chapter of Ezra. The third is that of Artaxerxes in the seventh year of his reign -- that is, in 457 B.C.; this is recorded in the seventh chapter of Ezra. The fourth is that of Artaxerxes in the year 444 B.C.; this is recorded in the second chapter of Nehemiah.

    But Daniel refers especially to the third edict which was issued in the year 457 B.C. Seventy weeks make four hundred and ninety days. Each day, according to the text of the Holy Book, is a year. For in the Bible it is said: "The day of the Lord is one year.[1] Therefore, four hundred and ninety days are four hundred and ninety years. The third edict of Artaxerxes was issued four hundred and fifty-seven years before the birth of Christ, and Christ when He was martyred and ascended was thirty-three years of age. When you add thirty-three to four hundred *41* and fifty-seven, the result is four hundred and ninety, which is the time announced by Daniel for the manifestation of Christ.
    [1 Cf. Num. 14:34.]

    In Matthew, chapter 24, verse 3, Christ clearly says that what Daniel meant by this prophecy was the date of the manifestation, and this is the verse: "As He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of Thy coming, and of the end of the world?" One of the explanations He gave them in reply was this (v. 15): "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)." In this answer He referred them to the eighth chapter of the Book of Daniel, saying that everyone who reads it will understand that it is this time that is spoken of.
