    In accordance with Matthew 10:5-15 I give you my greeting of Peace and preach 'The Kingdom of God is near!'The apocalypse is happening right now, please discuss. The church has a responsibility to make a thorough investigation! (-St Paul). An example of the proof on the site is this. Taking just two instances of the number of the beast 616: 616 years between the birth of Jesus and the revelation that Muhammad received Verse 61:6 in the Koran quoting Ahmed as coming after Jesus. These are just about as promenent positions for 616 as you can get. If you assume that they are random, what is the probability that the both occured? Say Islam could have formed anywhere between 200AD and 1800AD. There are 6234 verses in the Koran. Therefore, the probability of occurance is (1/1600)*(1/6234)=0.0000001or one in ten million

    Going back to the Greek, I'd have to say the number is 666 and not 616 as it is often thought.However, you are right in that Jesus talk us that the Kingdom of God is indeed near. Remember to know the signs and know that it will come like a thief in the night meaning suddenly. Know the signs given in Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21.

    Yes, it just has come like a theif in the night! The website is the apocalypse, which precedes armageddon, the second coming of our Lord and the end.

    alasdairI don't know if this is your site or just one you like. I went back to the site to read a little more as to give it a fair chance even though some of it is well written and is in line with scripture it is hard to take it as a serious attempt at explaining biblical prophecy with some of the ridiculous statements that are made for instance the following quote made me laugh."Horses, there are so many Horses in the prophetic parts of the bible! What do Horses do?They neigh. What did Jesus tell people to do? Love your Neigh-bor" Although I find this above statement hysterically funny I cant imagine a true serious scholar of bible prophecy would ever make such a ridiculous claim.Yes, there are horses mentioned in bible prophecy, and yes Jesus said love thy neighbor ,but this is all that's true in this statement. In a time when the main mode of transportation was walking, donkey's, or carts pulled by various animals horses were the fastest, strongest, most powerful way to travel.Even today as also in prophecy the idea of a horse represents an animal/thing of speed, power and strength.Furthermore horses whinny and nay as we would say and pronounce these words in English but the bible wasn't written in English, admittedly I don't know how to pronounce these words in Greek, Aramaic, or Hebrew I am very doubtful they sound anything like neigh or nay.Lastly in terms of bible prophecy it makes absolutely no sense what so ever that in the midst of warning us of our impending judgement God stops and says, oh yeah, love your neigh-bor.Does it not make more sense that he is saying judgment comes with power, speed and strength.If this is your site I apologize if I have offended you but God is not the author of confusion and I feel some of the claims on this site can cause some to become very confused

    Yes I also smiled when I realised that one! You have to accept the Kingdom of God like a child, not with the incense, fancy clothes, palaces and all the other trappings that come with the outward form of the Christian faith. True Christianity has very nothing to do with hymns and church!

    you are right about that alasdair to be a Christain you need only believe in the one true God live by his law (the commandments) and known that Christ is the only begotten son of God and died for your sins.Thats it, no church required
