Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Let’s have an open discussion. Consider the following:
If the fig tree is started to bud in 1948 with the declaration of the state of Israel, we are nearing the end of the last generation at an alarming rate. We are already 66 years into this last generation. If we are not in the final 7 years yet, we can add it to the 66 years. That means this generation is at least 73 years old.
We don’t have much time left…
If the EU is the revived Roman Empire they will have to rise to superpower status in a record time. They will need to get an army that can wage war and conquer very fast.
Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
They will also have to take control of the financial systems of the world.
Reality says that Europe has tried for over 60 years to achieve that and failed.
For the same reasons I cannot see an Islamic beast/antichrist in the near future.
And for the same time (66 years) the world had one country that fit the above description. Nobody can make war with him and win and he is controlling the world economy and trade.
Are we missing something?
