Jesus: False Prophet?
These three verses from Matthew seem to be clear enough in what they are saying –
When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. I tell you the truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes. (Matthew 10:23)
I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom. (Matthew 16:28)
I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. (Matthew 24:34)
And what about this from Mark?
And he said to them, “I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power.” (Mark 9:1)
Or from Luke?
I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God. (Luke 9:27)
What does John present?
I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death. (John 8:51)
Jesus CLEARLY states that his return would happen during the lifetime of his disciples, yet 2000 years later there’s still no sign of him! He also stated that anyone who kept his would would never die! The Bible has something to say about this kind of behaviour –
“If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him” (Deut. 18:22)
Christians, please explain this, by your own holy book Jesus is a false prophet.
