THE GREATEST SCAM IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND

Luke 21.20-22, ISV

When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then understand that its devastation is approaching. Then those in Judea must flee to the mountains, those inside the city must leave it, and those in the countryside must not go into it, because these are the days of vengeance when all that is written will be fulfilled.
- http://biblehub.com/isv/luke/21.htm

There are many people today that believe that all prophecies are not fulfilled. If that be the case then Jesus lied in the passage quoted above. In this passage, Jesus was talking to His disciples. In this passage he first said, "When you." Who's the you? Obviously, it's the disciples to whom he was speaking. What did he tell them, and was what he told them true?

First, he told them they would see Jerusalem surrounded by armies. Did they see that? He then said they should know or understand that the devastation of Jerusalem would be approaching. Was Jerusalem devastated? He warned that people should flee to the mountains. Why? The answer, "because these are the days of vengeance when all that is written will be fulfilled." That's what Jesus said. Was it true? Not if there are still prophecies yet to be fulfilled. Jesus said that all that is written would be fulfilled during those days of vengeance. If they weren't, then Jesus lied.

I would prefer to think that Jesus was not a liar. But, if there are written prophecies still unfulfilled, then it is obvious that he lied. Either that, or those that teach there are written prophecies still unfulfilled, they are lying. But, that can't be, can it?

ALL THAT IS WRITTEN

What is meant by, "all that is written"? Some translations translates this as, "all the Scripture." And the Scriptures during Jesus time on earth were the Old Testament. And that would include Daniel. Many who claim there are written prophecies still to be fulfilled often bring up the 70 Weeks of Daniel. And that we are awaiting the final or 70th week. If that is true, then all that is written was not fulfilled as Jesus said. The 70 weeks of Daniel were written, weren't they? Jesus did say that all that is written would be fulfilled, didn't he? Then it is obvious, if we are yet awaiting the 70th week of Daniel, that was written in Daniel, then Jesus lied. obviously, all things that is written were not all fulfilled.

THE LIES OF JESUS

If Jesus lied about prophecy, might he lied about other things? Can we trust anything Jesus said to be true? If we can't trust what Jesus said to be true, then we surely can't trust what his followers taught either. If not, then the New Testament cannot be trusted, since it is based on what Jesus and his followers taught. Then Christianity is based on nothing but lies. If that be the case, Jesus and his followers pulled of the greatest scam in the history of mankind.

THE TRUTH

Isn't it time for the truth? Jesus is not a liar. He and his followers did not pull off the greatest scam in the history of mankind. If Jesus said that all things written would be fulfilled, then they were. And those teaching that any prophecy that was written is yet to be fulfilled, they are the one's that are lying. Why? Well, I think it's money and power. The subject of Bible prophecy rakes in a lot of money for those who are selling it. And the power they wield over their followers is scary. Those who are peddling their lies about Bible prophecy can go on TV and tell their followers to send money to their "ministry" so they can keep selling their lies.

But, the truth is, the days of vengeance have occurred , and all that is written were fulfilled in those days of vengeance just as Jesus said. That's the truth. All the prophecies written in the Old Testament have been fulfilled. And since New Testament prophecy is based on Old Testament prophecy, they are fulfilled as well.

The greatest scam in the history of mankind is summed up in one word. Futurism.

I was trying to understand this and I looked up futurism to find out what it meant and it said "20th century art movement". That can't be what you are saying, is it Tom?

Futurism in the term given to the body of doctrines that suggest that there is Bible prophecy still to be fulfilled. I have written many articles, and an online booklet to show that is just not true. And there are many others who have written on the subject.

The doctrines that teach that all prophecies have been fulfilled is called "preterism." Comes from "preterit tense," in the English language, which means events or actions that are past. That is where I am.
