    The beast was Nero.
    The beast was Nero.
    The 42 months are first century.
    You aren’t the first person who has made that claim. It’s been made through the centuries. And all because of a misreading of clear teachings of Christ.

    Let me ask you this though. If globalism took over sovereignty of nations and they opposed Christians telling them they have to deny Christ or the Christian faith AND....there was a marking system of not being able to buy and sell would you not come to a place where to start wondering that maybe, just maybe the futurists were correct?

    What does a global government have to do with anything?

    Not at all. Why should I think Jesus got it wrong?

    Not Nero. Nero did not meet his end by being cast alive into the lake of fire.

    The 42 months end with Jesus's return. The 42 months have not happened yet.

    You are making a generalized statement,
    Who are the other persons during the centuries are basing their claim on Jerusalem being back in the hands of the Jews in 1967?

    No one predicted Jerusalem being back in the hand of the Jews in 1967. How could they, they had no basis.

    Generation of the fig tree. A generation is 40 years. Nero emperor of Rome 54-68 AD. The destruction of Jerusalem by Rome 70 AD.

    So your Reformed theology is so absolute in this matter of 666 that you'd do what if they DID bring in a mark? Go ahead and take it? And if the mark WAS somehow strangely something to do with 666 or even 616 you'd just go ahead without giving it a second thought? I'd hope at least it would cause you to pause and re-evaluate.

    No one in this forum, in any post, in any thread, is saying Jesus got anything wrong.

    I don't know about Hammster, but if everything that's described before the mark of the beast had taken place first in the present, I'd know by then that I was wrong. That's how we know the vaccine isn't the mark of the beast, because the stuff proceeding it hasn't happened yet or it already happened around 70 AD.

    Uh oh, that vaccination actually left a mark on my arm. But wait, the Bible says the mark will be on the forehead or on the hand. Unless by hand it meant shoulder.

    I hope that this isn’t too much of a shock, but 1967 isn’t in the Bible.

    The real mark of the beast is the counterfeit mark of the Lamb. It’s not any more literal than


    “You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead.
    Deuteronomy 11:18

    So why should I think that He did?

    Most likely. But that's all I was able to come up with off the top of my head.

    You asked me if there was more. Which I figured meant is there more to it than what I said. My reply was that there most likely is more to it. But what I said is all I can think of about it off the top of my head. Nero and the destruction of Jerusalem took place within a generation of Jesus giving the parable of the fig tree. So I think the generation of the fig tree already took place around 70 AD.
