What does the Bible say about the second coming of Jesus? Anyone else feel like its going to happen soon with how curropt the world is?
In every generation there are some people that think it's coming soon, but it's not.So don't get your hopes up.
>>13446519Its never been as bad as todays world. Not even another great flood could cleanse it this time so things must be coming to an end
>>13446519Read the book of revelation
It is going to happen 2000 years after his Crucifixion. Soon.
Probably not the end of the world yet, but our systems are going to collapse and go back into something better, whether it happens through plague/famine/politics who knows. Maybe a combination of those things on a very gradual level, ~200yrs or so.
>>13446582Everybody thinks it’s their generation. The people who wrote the Bible thought it would happen in their lifetime. Truth is no human knows. It might be our generation it might come after us. Worrying won’t change anything. Pray and get baptized.
BC 4000 to 2000>2000 to 0>0 to 2000 ADSOON.
>>13446513>it will happen now guise I sweareverytime
>>13446513Per secula seculorum
>>13446582hahaha you have no idea how bad things can and will getthis is only the beginning
>>13446513Everything in the Book of Revelation has to take place before Jesus comes back. Also other prophecies in scripture. We need a third temple, and the ten tribes have to come back. The two witnesses need to appear in Jerusalem and do their miracles.
>>13446513It's an individual event.
>>13446513"Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom."Matthew 16:28Not trolling or being rude, but how do Christians interpret this verse given how literal it appears? Why would he say "some" and "standing here" and "death" if he only meant the generation itself, and not those specific individuals he was speaking to?
>>13447669Apocalypse of John
It says you won't know when it's coming.
>>13446582>Its never been as bad as todays worldhttps://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanjing_Massacre
>>13447020Why 2000? Why not 1000 or 10000?
i remember back in 2010 they say he would come and around 2017 i became an atheist
>>13446582>Its never been as bad as todays worldkek, delusions of the privileged.
>>13446582>what is WW1>what is WW2>what is the Black Plague>what is the Cold Wari could go on
>>13447669John 21:20-24. Maybe the apostle John never died.
>>13447879>physical violence is the only bad
>“Concerning that day and exact hour, no one knows when it will arrive, not the angels of heaven, not even the Son—only the Father knows. This is why you must be waiting, watching and praying, because no one knows when that season of time will come.” -Mark 13:32:34Open up your bible and read it. Nobody knows except the Father; not the Holy Spirit and not even Jesus himself.
>>13447921Come back to Christ.
>>13448100come on pwease :3
>>13448172since was abused physically and psychologically by members of this religion, it would be against my principles to re-join christianity, sorry but i stand firm against any systematic form of opression whether it´s from the state, religion, ideology, peer pressure and so on, fuck religion and fuck god
>>13447974I'd consider having my abdomen sliced open with a bayonet and then having the wound penetrated sexually until I died to be pretty bad.
>>13448198Humans are corruptible anon. But not God. It's good to be free, but not misled.
>>13447070Oh yes>>13446513Hear that OP? Its all downhill from here. Maybe the world will end when everyone is eating their own children, but not yet.
>>13447879>Not even a century agoThere's people alive today who remember that. not so long ago.
>>13449595wtf is that picture? It looks like king crimson but for the life of me I can't remember that panel
>>13449595>>13449635Nvm I'm retarded, it took like 5 seconds to find online
>>13447959>>13447879Those are fucking nothing compared to homosexual rights and feminismI'd see 1000 people die before I'd watch two faggots sodomize eachother
>>13449649dude... epic win...
What are /lit/'s thoughts on the modern attempts to build a Third Temple by the Temple Institute? IIRC the recently elected mayor of Jerusalem expressed vocal support for them and their cause.
No one knows the date or time, just keep studying and praying, and be sure to congregate with the saints
>>13449776It will never happen, nor should it. Firstly it would require destroying a world heritage site and hugely important mosque. Secondly what form would this temple take? Would it just be a massive multi denominational synagogue, or would it start an effort to restore the priesthood and get rid of rabbis? Judaism is so different from what it was in the first century, going back is impossible.
There's already a third temple in Brazil.
>>13446582we've got another few hundred years until the collapse of liberal democracies and the hellscape of superintelligent ai anarchism.
>>13449984The Temple Institute wants to build it according to the descriptions in the OT and they are training people to become priests and perform sacrifices within the temple. It's related to the modern attempt at re-establishing the Sanhedrin as the governing body within Judaism.
>>13450152And what, throw out the talmud? Ridiculous.
>>13450196Hey, I didn't say it was my idea. You can read more details at their official website and judge them accordingly.templeinstitute.org
>>13448198consider finding god outside of organized religion.
>>13450256>>13449580there is no god, period.
>>13450614how do you know
>>13450622https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkExxkrMyU4this video really enlighten at the time, also i remember reading a lot of sources about the origin of judaism (which was originally a pagan polytheistic religion), there was a god-masculine and a goddess-feminine
when was the world not corrupt exactly?
>>13449649>RENT FREEthey're not asking you to watch them, you neurotic creep. Why are straight people so fucking obsessed with gay sex?
>>13446513yes OP the jewish fairy tales are real
>>13447669it's a metaphor is it makes xtians look bad, it's literal is it makes them look good
>>13452325they just have parades with children in drag and leather clad men on leashes in public. nothing perverted about that
>>13446513The Bible says that none may know the day. Don't even try to predict it.
>>13447669It means that the Disciples still walk among us, unseen and immortal.
>>13450011>another few hundred yearsFuckI wanted to see it
>>13446582Ever heard of the Black Plague? People were almost justified in believing the world was ending back thrny
>>13450152Humanity honestly just needs to drop a Cobalt bomb on Jerusalem and Mecca, would save people so much time and energy on things that don't really matter. If they want to change their ghosts can slip through the cordon and deal with the radiation poisoning
>>13446513The world will always be on the brink of the second coming, but it seems like it will never actually come.
>>13446513no one's coming to save us. If you want salvation you have to rise up and fight alongside your neighbors when the time comes.
