Jesus & His Prophecies
by Mark Smith
Jesus, the FALSE PROPHET OF CHRISTENDOM, prophesied that all of the following would occur within the lifetime of people living around 33 AD. The time limit he himself laid down has long since expired!
? The stars would fall to earth
? The Great Tribulation & Rapture
? Judgement Day for all mankind
? The Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
Listen to what the liar himself said around 33 AD to his fellow Jews gathered around him:
“Remember that all these things will happen before the people now living have all died.” (Matthew 24:34 TEV)
“For the Son of Man [i.e. Jesus] is about to come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he will reward each one according to his deeds. I assure you [i.e. swear to you] that there are some here who will not die until they have seen the Son of Man [Jesus] come as King.” (Matthew 16: 27, 28 TEV)
Jesus did not return within their lifetime as promised, nor did Judgment Day occur. Therefore, these false prophecies by Jesus make Jesus a false prophet, just as certainly as committing a murder makes one a murderer. But just because Jesus set the “goal posts” of his return as being within the First Century hasn’t stopped ancient or modern Christians from fixing the problem by moving the date, the “goal posts”, always ahead- just out of reach, sort of like the proverbial dangling of the carrot in front of the horse’s mouth.
Lied to Caiaphas
During his trial in front of Caiaphas Jesus the liar falsely prophesied that his Second Coming would happen within the lifetime of Caiaphas, i.e. while Caiaphas the high priest was still alive (Matthew 26:64). Guess what? Almost two thousand years have passed since Caiaphas has no longer been alive- and STILL NO JESUS!!!
And as for those die-hard Christian Fundies who told me “maybe Caiaphas is still ALIVE”, sorry, but Caiaphas really is dead – a photo of his tomb made the cover of the Sept/Oct 1992 Biblical Archaeology Review.
Once again, false prophecies by Jesus prove Jesus a false prophet, as Jesus did not return within Caiaphas’ lifetime as promised.
Within Lifetime of These Roman Soldiers
While Jesus was dying on the cross for being a false prophet, some Roman soldiers stuck him with their spears. These soldiers who stuck him- Jesus was prophesied to return within their lifetime as well. It is written in the Book of Revelation that “Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, EVEN THOSE WHO PIERCED HIM…” (Revelation 1:7 NASB). Once again, another broken promise, another false prophecy, as Jesus did not return within the lifetime of the soldiers as promised.
