The "end" of the "world"...

Hello my myLot friends. To make it known, the term "world" is rendered two ways in the new testament. One means, AGE, and the other means the land of the Roman empire. I am having a hard time understanding why people can not see that Yashua was talking to his disciples when he told them about the "end of the world". They have the Greek translation of the new testament, so how is it that people can not see this? Why would he tell the people in the time he lived that his coming was going to be 2040 years later? It makes no sense to me...those living then would have all simply thought that they had nothing to worry about. Wasnt Yashua also a prophet? Does YAHVAH send prophets to places 2000 years in advance to tell them that something will take place? NO!!! That is silly... He judged the land of Israel for their rejection of the Messiah. Its funny that a huge portion of Christians think Yashua (Jesus) is GOD, ( which I do NOT, by the way), but have a hard time believing that GOD would want to punish those who nailed him to the cross. Why did it take 40 years to judge them? Because it had to fulfill two very important things. Namely, The mission of Paul to the Gentiles, and the mission of Peter to the children of Israel scattered abroad. Plus, it was to fulfill that which was written about in the time of Moses, to when Joshua entered the land of Canaan to take hold of it for the promises to be fulfilled. Why these two things? Because they both were to be reconciled to each other through the Messiah. Period. It started waaay back in Genesis chapter 9. It had to take place so that the house of Japhath, the Gentiles, could "live in the tents of Shem" (This means adoption or being grafted in.) So, did I help to make a few things more clear for everyone? Tell me what you think. Because if you need me to be more clear, I have no problem explaining myself...

Since I was a muslim, its not my rights to answer it. But, do I already in here so I will left couple word. In Qur'an, its clearly state that He just a prophet. No more.

Hello, Devilova. Well, I suggest you read the book, "Evidence That Demands A Verdict" by Josh McDowell. It is for sure the book that opened my eyes. I was at one time an atheist, but after reading this, I changed my views forever!!! I hop that you read it.

Right. That is kind of my point. It was meant to be seen as the end of an "age". Everyone would have the understanding of the truth, and It would cleanse their minds of the "stuff" they once believed. Yes, violence and hate would be done away with. Thanks for the response, and have a great day.

I agree that Jesus peace be upon him is a prophet not God , not nailed him to the cross ( they do that to another one , God make him like Jesus , that is the truth which Christians not believe it ,I know that he will come down before the end of the world , because it is a sign of a Judgement Day signs .

Hello, samar54. I see that you believe in Yashua, (Jesus), but not like most Christians do. Yes, YAHVAH spoke the WORD into existence and Yashua became a living soul in Mary's womb. He is only the "son" of YAHVAH, when he was baptized, and the spirit was given to him, from that time. His ministry was only for one year. (Because he had to be the lamb without blemish, of ONE year.) He was nailed to the cross, because of the sins of the world. He fulfilled prophesy because he was the chosen "sacrifice" that YAHVAH wanted for forgiving people of their sins. There is the proof he was the messiah in the wanderings of the children of Israel. The proof that the cross was foretold was in the encampment of the children of Israel. A birds eye view of the encampment will show how they were set up. It looked like a cross, form the sky. And the children of Israel were judged in 68 A.D. for crucifying him. I know it is hard to see but I must say the prophesies of the new testament are all over the old. They cycle and happen again to tell us how to prepare for future things. He told Moses, to make sure everything was done after the "Pattern" of the things that he saw on the mount. He made the feasts happen yearly to make the people aware that things happen over, and over again. He wanted to let the people see their mistakes, so that the next time the same thing happened, they would get it right.
