After Christ returns, you shall all see that I will be borne out by Him to be correct. Be patient, my doubters.
When John the Baptist was heralding Christ's First Coming, no doubt many did not believe him at that time, particularly the 'high society' Jewish people who looked down their noses at the common man.
I am just glad to know that I have Christ's astronomy-based instructions recorded in Luke 21:25a & Matthew 24:29-30a to wrap around myself for assurance that I am correct. And by virtue of my living at the right time, my deriving the fulfillment of Matthew 24:29 in 1999 was quite actually Child's Play for me to do.
John the Baptist was leading people to repentance, he was offering people a new chance, not by following him but by following God. You OTOH are simply lording over people with nothing to offer or even substantiate your claims other than your prideful rhetoric of "I'm right and you're wrong, just because I say so".
There is no astronomy necessary here, you are completely off kilter.
Those who believe that there will be this Antichrist, Armageddon, Seven Years of Tribulation, Rapture, Mark of the Beast, '666' scenario prior to Christ's return are the ones who will shown to be deceived. I can easily promise you that, Alan.
As I have shared on End Times prophecy boards a few times for the past 10 years:
I express a decidedly minority view here, but it's been my firm expectation since 1992 that history will repeat itself regarding the fulfillment of prophecy from a holy book: It is my understanding that 2000 years ago in Israel, the Jewish religious authorities believed that the Messiah promised to come spoken of in their holy book (what Christians now refer to as the Old Testament) would come as a powerful Jewish warrior who would liberate Israel from the domination of Rome's rule over them. Instead, Christian today believe that this Jewish Messiah came in the form of Jesus as a Sacrificial Lamb who died for the sins of all mankind by dying on the cross.
Fast forward to today, and tens of millions of Christians are told by so-called End Times prophecy "experts" to expect God to unleash His wrath for a seven year period of time, complete with an evil Antichrist who will rule the world, etc., etc. It is my understanding that Internet discussion boards are also set up so that these End Times prophecy enthusiasts can discuss these things that will never actually come to pass.
But once again, today's prophecy "experts" will be shown to be wrong (as their counterparts of 2000 years ago were shown to be) when Jesus returns to a world very much like the one that we inhabit today, with no Antichrist, Armageddon, Seven Years of Tribulation, Rapture, etc., etc.
