Whatever prophecy is there in Bible are actally statements.For eample, Out of Egypt have I called my som' son refers to Israel and not jesus. if it was written 'Out of Egypt have I called my son , jesus Christ, then we would be able to call it a real prophecy. is there one page in the bible that World war I will be fought in 1914? WW II willbe fought in 1939? Does Bible mention anywhere Adolf hitler, Mussolini? Does it say anywhere that chrsitopher columbus will ne day discover America? Does the Bible anywehre mention Australia, new Zealand, Hong Kong, SouthAmerica etc..? The bible says that false prophets will appear? Does it mention anywhere the names of even one 'false prophet'? Does the bible mention about traffic lights, the various scientific inventions of twentieth centuries etc.. There are thousand and one things whichbible fails to mention.

Further proof that 'the Bible is not about us'---it is ALL about Jesus - the things that came before Him (that made humanity NEED Him), His action-of-supreme-love while He lived, & the 'guidance' His followers & fans (especially Saul-becoming-Paul) used to become "founding-stones in the churches' parishoners' minds." I think of prophecy more as 'speculative fiction'---kind of 'projecting your imagination ahead: sorta "someone will make THIS happen in an attempt to bring about THAT, causing THE OTHER to react by making something else happen." Prophecy is kinda man's "comforting his mind" that 'all these things must come to pass'---nothing you can do about it, so worrying about it only hurts you and doesn't make anyone feel any better

yep! it's amazing how guys who were in hiding after Jesus' arrest, after the "pouring out of God's Spirit upon and in them" they changed the world.. and were executed/martyred for it (except one who in old age wrote the Book of Revelation.. which, btw, I think has helicopters.. and tanks in it (ch 9) but of course they're descriptions of what he saw in a vision, so he describes them as some sort of animal or insect.. I do know the city Tyre, was prophesied that the stones of her would lie in the sea and I heard if you go there today, there are stones of Tyre you can see lying off the shore in the water of the mediterranean.. I haven't read the books of the prophets for a loong time.. if it was a few weeks from now I would be able to write more because I'm rereading the Bible from the beginning.. I've been focused mainly on the New Testament and Psalms for a long time.

"Whatever prophecy is there in Bible are actally statements." Isaiah 44:28; 45:1; and 45:13 "is there one page in the bible that World war I...etc." No. Is there any prophecy that does? "The bible says that false..." Jeremiah 14:14, Matthew 7:15, 24:11, 24:24, Mark 13:22, Luke 6:26, 2 Peter 2:1, 1 John 4:1 "Does it mention anywhere the names of even one 'false prophet'?" Act 13:6,7 "Does the bible mention about traffic lights..." No, but I think biblical prophecies are given to either prepare the people for a particular event, like the coming of the Messiah, or to warn the people. It's not about future inventions.

Touchy subject, obviously. But it does seem to be a rather simple subject. The Bible is true for one reason and one reason only, and that's if a person wants it to be. Even then an individual selects which parts to accept as truth and claims the rest to be fables and metaphors. If one has no dog in the fight, I highly doubt one would find any truth or revelation in the book. One might take away small tidbits of wisdom, but only out of context. If one were to read the entire book without being primed and guided, one will see that the negative grossly outweighs the positive. There is no way around that. Not saying it's impossible, of course, but I'm aware of no man, woman or child who was unaware of religion and then read the Bible and found it to be true or even a book with more relevancy than any of the thousands of fairy tales (at least in the modern age; 1640 and such notwithstanding). For those who want it to be true, there are plenty of reasons why the book doesn't mention anything a skeptic may assume an omnipotent being would mention for the betterment of its creation. But you cannot argue with people's hearts and except it to be civil or enlightening. You can still argue, as I love to do! But it just becomes vitriolic in the end, with what seems to be a never-ending array of defense missiles fired at naysayers. They don't land on any target, but the smoke gets thick in a hurry.

Why the interest in prophecies? The most important aspect of a religion is its teachings and not any prophecies. Prophecies and supernatural feats do not make the religion valid, its teachings does. You should not follow a "religion" where you are taught to hate others no matter how accurate its prophecies are, whereas any religion that teaches you to love all is valid.

Are you suggesting the Bible is unreliable because it doesn't mention traffic lights or scientific inventions, New Zealand, or Christopher Columbus? Do you even know what the Bible is about or what the prophecies are and the reason for them?

The Bible can not contain every little detail and I think God planned it that way so that we would study it harder to search out the truth. Like Daniel. God didn't give him all the information that was to come. As it was, I seem to remember that Daniel fainted over what he was shown. I do wish that God could show us what was going to happen to us if we chose a certain path to follow. I am sure that many people would choose their path differently if they could see the future.

i do not have a lot of time, but here goes a few. that come to mind..If you want more i will get you the scripture latter in the week. The Bible does not name any of the false prophets, By name...but it does tell us that we will know them by their fruits.....and i would say that their fruits speak for themselves..... One of the prophecy that has happened during our life time is that the Jewish people would have the nation of Israel back which happened i believe in 1948 or around their....It also stated that they would get Jerusalem which happened in 1967. If you would read the bible you would get your answers. The Bible talks about all the important things that we need to know. about what is to come... Why would it talk about material things, Their are 3 major wars that the bible does talk about happening close to the end of the age..and by the looks of what is happening in the world today it looks like they might be getting ready to happen any day.....If you want the scriptures i will get them for you latter when time permits....
