Richard and I disagree on the timeline, I say that it is the last days of the end times and he disagrees. So I will make a few posts with different subject headings on biblical prophecies that have been fulfilled and what the prophets said about the timeline and the criteria that they gave. In some cases it is important to cross reference, because experienced biblical scholars are aware that the book of Revelation is a compilation of prophecies from the Jewish prophets.
I will tell you now that I am more interested in biblical prophecy that relates to current events; I do not spend hours discussing other texts due to the sheer immensity of what is taking place on the planet at this point in time.
So this thread is for the sign of Jonah. You have the perfect right to agree or disagree. My role is to share the truth and the evidence so that people can KNOW truth for themselves.
The Sign of Jonah
38 Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, 'Teacher, we want to see a sign from you.'
39 He answered, [B]'A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a sign! [/B]But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now something greater than Jonah is here. 42 The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon’s wisdom, and now something greater than Solomon is here.
43 'When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. 44 Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. 45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.'
1. Jesus tells the Pharisees that the sign of Jonah will be seen by a wicked and adulterous generation in Israel.
2. Son of Man that is a term of endearment for a prophet. 150 Biblical scholars at the Jesus Seminar agree with Geza Vermes that when Jesus was speaking about the Son of Man to come he was not speaking about himself.
3. Queen of the South will rise.
'Will rise' is future tense.
It also includes the name of the Queen of the South that matches the Torah.
4. The Judgement of Israel and the Pharisees.
5. He tells them that she is greater than Solomon and his wisdom.
Why is she greater than Solomon? Solomon married people from different nations to keep the peace. Solomon was prepared to adulterate his own soul and energy to keep the peace for Israel. In other words Solomon's love and body was for sale in exchange for peace, and Jesus knew that love is not for sale. 'People are not a commodity, without love they become so' from Sacred Words
Wisdom is also mentioned in Rev 13 and wisdom was called to do the count.
Modern day what religion says it is a religion of peace? Islam.
Now cross-reference that with Rev 12 and the wondrous woman from heaven has the moon under her feet. The crescent moon is also a symbol of Islam and sits on their flags and mosques.
The sign of Jonah turned up in Israel in 2010 and the scientists were baffled by it.
Following that there was the flotilla disaster and then 5 million trees burned down on Mount Carmel Jewish New Year. Carmel is also the mount of the Prophets and Our Lady. I was sent there in 2006 and 2007.
The direction of the South is also the direction of the prophets and that was another sign being given in the words of Jesus.
He mentioned the number THREE and 2010 was a three year.
In addition to the whale turning up. If you look at the last judgement fresco by Michelangelo, at the top of the painting is Jonah with the whale. Everything underneath it is being destroyed including the Church.
The predictions that Jesus made are amazingly accurate.
