    Do you think that any Bible prophcies have been fullfiled?

    I have read in a few hubs that none of the Bibical prophocies have come to pass...What do you think?

    Sure! For example, the vision Daniel saw of a ram with two horns is a prophesy fulfilled after his time (Daniel 8:3-4). Identification of the ram as the Medo-Persian Empire that overcame the Babylonian Empire is made by the angel Gabriel in Daniel 8:20. Next, the vision Daniel saw foretells the transition from this empire to the Greek Empire of Alexander. This next empire is represented by a shaggy goat with one large horn. The prominent horn represents Alexander the Great. See Daniel 8:5-7. Alexander is seen utterly destroying the Medo-Persian ram. Then, there is Ezekiel 37, fulfilled in more recent times with the UN's decree establishing the nation of Israel in 1947. These are just a few examples.

    The rebirth of Israel was implied by Revelation. That's done.

    And in 1986, the Great Star named Chernobyl ("wormwood" in Ukrainian) spread its pestilence across a third of the old world. Interesting to note that stars are "light-weight" nuclear reactors (hydrogen to helium; fusion), while man-made nuclear reactors are made with heavy ("great") elements (plutonium; fission).

    A year or so before 9/11, one of the Rockefellers mentioned to the late Aaron Russo about a big event that would give "us" Iraq and Afghanistan, plus a lucrative and never ending "war on terror." The ultimate goal of that "big event" was to get everyone "microchipped." (In another Hub question, someone was asking about the government's plans to have everyone implanted with the RFID chip.) This would give the Rockefellers and their thugs complete control over the population. This is Revelation 13's "mark of the beast" without which we will be unable to perform any kind of commerce. Taking this "mark" is automatically condemned. Though this hasn't happened, yet, the Rockefellers have made it known it's their intent (making them the beast?), and one NBC news program projected that everyone will be chipped by 2017.

    I had always thought the United States would be a force for good in the upcoming Armageddon. But the way the Constitution is being shredded and America is attacking other nations, plus creating a false flag operation (9/11) to justify attacking Iraq and Afghanistan, I've lost all hope in America being the "good guys" in the upcoming fight between good and evil.

      Israel already had its day in the sun and already fulfilled its destiny with Revelation. We are now already 1,942 years after the fact. I believe we are living in what the Bible refers to as the "age to come".

      Prophecy was never "perplexing".It s we who take one verse, or a partial verse; or even a loose translation of the Bible out of context in order to twist the words to find prophetic statements within or to legitimate wars against innocent nations.

    We might be seeing one right in front of our eyes. The Gentile nations that surround Israel today are the ones spoken of in Psalm 83. It speaks of a coming major war in the Middle East. The birth pangs are coming into fruition right now with tensions mounting with Israel and the surrounding major players.


    Psalm 83 references.

    Tents of Edom = Palestinian Refugees and Southern Jordanians
    Ishmaelites = Saudi Arabians
    Moab = Palestinian Refugees and Central Jordanians
    Hagrites = Egyptians
    Gebal = Northern Lebanese
    Ammon = Palestinian Refugees and Northern Jordanians
    Amalek = Arabs of Sinai south of Israel
    Philistia = Hamas of Gaza Strip and Palestinian Refugees
    Tyre = Hezbollah and the Southern Lebanese
    Assyria = Syrians, Moab, Ammon and Northern Iraq (?)

    There was a joint military simulation with the U.S. and Israel in preparation from an all out missile attack. Read verses 4 and 5 from the Psalm 83, it is happening right now. Google Earth the area and read the world news headlines and connect the dots.

      I believe what most conservative scholars argue, that this psalm does not contain a prophecy but is a lament for a nation, Israel; as it manifests several characteristics common to laments in other psalms and other parts of the Bible.

    I see here some hubbers talking about the birth of Israel as one of Bibical prophocies.So my answer will be focused on this issue.First of all,let us start with KJV Bible, Matthew 21:43:
    Jesus said to the Jews: "Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof
    According to the Apocalypse of Peter, this nation would come from the Arabs. What other nation beside the modern Muslims Glorify GOD Almighty in their 5-daily Prayers, and fast the Month of Ramadan for Him?

    Let's look at what GOD Almighty said about Ishmael, the father of the Muslims: "And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed;..I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly..I will make him a great nation. But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.The KJV Bible, Genesis 17:19-21

    The Jews were GOD Almighty's chosen people:  "We did aforetime grant to the Children of Israel the Book the Power of Command, and Prophethood; We gave them, for Sustenance, things good and pure; and We favoured them above the nations.  (The Noble Quran, 45:16)"

    But after they utterly failed with GOD Almighty and His Messengers (Not Moses ever liked their actions, nor Jesus ever liked them and their killings of the Prophets):
    the KJV Bible, Matthew 23:37
    the NIV Bible, Isaiah 48:6-9
    the NIV Bible, Isaiah 43:28
    the NIV Bible, Isaiah 50:11
    They became cursed, and GOD Almighty removed His Kingdom from them and gave it to another nation.  That nation is non other than the "blessed" Muslims who came from the "blessed" Ishmael.
    The liars of the NIV Bible had inserted a forgery into their English translation.  In Genesis 16:11-12, they inserted a cheap name-calling "wild ass" for Ishmael, while the original scripts in the King James Version Bible called him "wild man":
    the KJV Bible, Genesis 16:11-12
    Ishmael was a wild man, and a "blessed" one by GOD Almighty (Gen. 17:19-21).  He fought the pagan Arabs who practiced brutal slavery and degradation of women.  It was part of the pagan Arabs' custom to bury daughters alive at the age of 4, because a birth of a female brought shame to the family.  Many pagan Arabs used to practice it.
    Ironically, the New Jerusalem Bible also agrees with this ridiculous pagan practice: "....and the birth of ANY daughter is a loss.  (From the New Jerusalem Bible, Ecclesiasticus 22:3)"
    i dont see any Biblical prophecies are going to take place.

    Not really,

    There are many vague and cryptic prophesies in the Bible – that is true. Ever since those prophesies were written, people have bent them and contorted them in many ways to try and match them up with events that have actually happened or about to happen. But these explanations really don’t hold up to scrutiny. I think it is only natural the people will want to find meaning in these things and I think they can - but literal meaning (as in historical events) – no.

    I am a minister in the Presbyterian Church, USA.  I have had three years of seminary training including extensive Bible study, including Hebrew and Greek.  If you are considering prophecies of the Christian Bible, consider Deuteronomy 13, which essentially says that if a prophecy comes true then you know the prophet to be true.  Prophecy, in the Bible, is meant as a call to repentance for the people who originally hear it.  The one biblical prophecy that matters to Christians is that Christ has come, that God became incarnate for us.  That there is resurrection.  No other prophecy is needed, and any hope that god will come again, and do it "right" this time, is unwarranted, and unbiblical.

      The Book of Revelation was written somewhere around 50 A.D. and is probably one of the very first New Testament Books, though it is listed last in the Biblical Canon. Paul even alludes to it in 2 Corinthians.

      Though some date Revelation earlier, the mid-90s has the stronger support and is the opinion held by the majority. Tradition says John was exiled to Patmos during Emperor Domitian's persecution, who ruled A.D. 81-96.

      That's right, Sword! The only support for a 96 A.D. event is Origen, who seems to remember St. John being freed from Patmos under Nerva. At best, Origen's recollection is second-hand and evidence suggests that St. John may not be Revelation's author.
