False and misleading Bible interpretations

Two propaganda sites

charismanews.com

They use an Ezekiel prophecy that depicts the destruction of Israel in the future.
Well that prophecy already came true.
What a bunch of fools! This is past history. It did happen in 604 BC. The Kingdoms of Israel and Judea were utterly destroyed, and Jews taken captive in Persia.

The misguided propaganda article titled:
Ezekiel Prophecy Reveals Major Future Alliance Against Israel.

Ezekiel never prophesied beyond the end of the Kingdoms of Israel and Judea.

WND.com

Another manipulative so called Bible prophecy interpretation. The Kingdom of Israel was the World's Superpower (One only needs to read about Solomon). And yes, Israel divided in 974 BC. to form Israel & Judea and then later was destroyed in 604 BC. by Nebuchadnezzar King of Persia. Persia also destroyed the Assyrians and the city of Damascus.

Article: 'MISSING PROPHECY' REVEALS FUTURE OF ISRAEL

The only future Bible prophecies of the Old Testament are: Isaiah (about Jesus Christ); Daniel (the 4 beasts of end times); Micah (in the last days); Zechariah (about future Jerusalem).


Please DO NOT let those propaganda machines tell you what is in the Bible: Read it for yourselves.

604 BC.

I will be making a list of those who use prophecies wrongly

  • Pastor Paul Begley uses Ezekiel's prophecies that have come true and are now history, as future. Do not trust him.
  • Israeli News Live on YouTube uses history as prophecy.
  • End Times Productions, YouTube channel, uses Jeremiah 33:16. It is taken out of context. It refers to an immediate future. God promises to protect Judah and Jerusalem from the King of Babylon and did for a little while. Israel however was the first to fall to Babylon. And latter, because the people of Judah did not follow God, they too were destroyed. History, not prophecy for our times. Joel 3:1 Reads: For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, This was a warning from God against the people of Judea. Israel was already destroyed by the Assyrians, and now the end of Judea was upon them if they did not return to God. The Kingdom of Israel will be restored after the END, and only then. The purchase and donation of today's Israel was done by England, not by God, for the time of the END is not yet.
  • Also, to all that use Old testament prophecies describing the future destruction of Damascus, Damascus was one of the first of the Kingdom of Israel (yes, Damascus was part of the Kingdom of Israel), that was destroyed by the Assyrians. In history, The Assyrians were destroyed by the Persian Empire, the same that finished the destruction of Judea and took them captive in Babylon.
  • The 'RAPTURE' occurs immediately after the tribulations (see Matthew 24:29-31 , Mark 13:24). The rapture occurring before the tribulations is wishful thinking only. And let's not forget, that the number of the Elect are: 144,000. To me very special individuals, and a very small number considering there are 7 billions on us on Earth.
The way I understand it, the only Prophets of the Old testament that did prophecy for a future millennials after their time are;
  • Isaiah (7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.); (9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.) and (chapter 53)
  • Daniel (end times prophecy 4 great beasts of the sea & the Son of Man everlasting dominion 7:13)
  • Micah (Micah "in the last days...")
  • Zechariah (future Jerusalem)
  • Note that in no place of the Old Testament does God promise to restore the Kingdom Israel except in End Times.
