Great Rebellion

Postby keithareilly on Sat Apr 28, 2007 1:04 pm

Hi Herb,

I have been thinking for some time that the great rebellion might be the Revolutionary War. Not our War of independance from Britain, but the Revoluionary War were many nations through off the arristocracy and implemented some form of self government.

What are your thoughts on this?

Interesting thought. But since Jesus tells us the final end-time prophecies will be fulfilled in one generation, and I believe the great apostacy is part of these prophecies, I lean away from your idea.

Hi Herb,

Is there reason to think the great apostasy occurs during the 7 years?

I thought it only had to happen prior to coming of antichrist, not necessarily within the 7 years.

Jesus, Paul and John all seem to say the great apostasy will occur before the AC is revealed in the temple middle of the week (Matt 24: 9-15, 2 Thess. 2:1-4, 1 John 2:18-19). So, I don't think whether the apostay begins before or in the first half of the 70th week is really addressed in prophecy. All we know for sure is it will begin before the middle of the week.
