Is it irrelevant that Israel has come back into its land in 1948 in the war of independence?  ::)

In the end Erik is right. It may be relevant to Dispensational theology and some Reformed teachers who don't understand prophecy, but it is irrelevant to the biblical reference to the Battle of Armageddon. I would recommend the book Behold He Cometh, by Rev. Herman Hoeksema. I think it can be found on online at spindleworks.

No. But I would expect even someone pretending to be a Christian would at least speak out against the chronic lying, immorality and criminality of this administration. But that's asking too much I guess.

As usual you are looking for justification rather than truth. Yes Megiddo was a place in Israel as recorded in scriptures (Joshua 17:11, Judges 5:19, 1 Kings 4:12 etc.) but you already know that it’s located in a valley not a mountain so please read Gods word in context.

Did you not read at this time God will turn valleys into mountains? I guess you missed that part. I am reading scripture, that's how I know that.

I don't know.  ..Judas Iscariot?  ...Jim Jones? ...John Hagee?

You know I just think that the bottom line is that we have fundamentally different definitions of what a Christian is at his core. Mine comes from the Bible and revealed around the Christ authored axion, "A tree is known by its fruits."

Historians tell us that Hitler professed Christ and Christianity but we all know he was not a Christian in any meaningful way. Nothing has changed. People have always used Christ for their own evil purposes.

As for Armageddon, it is clearly not literal. But sometimes it is futile to witness to people of contrary doctrines. Why they come back here week after week I have no idea. But obviously, it isn't to learn anything.

Yeah... If you have ANY differing view at all you’re not Christian to a few here. Take me for example. I agree on almost all points at the core of Christianity: doctrines of grace, limited atonement, even agreeing on eschactology, but heaven forbid I have a differing political view or claim a “conspiracy theory” and all of a sudden I’m not a Christian.

Psalm 130:3 If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?

I take it you are talking about these verses?

Zech 14:4-5

4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

This has already been fulfilled at Christ first advent as witnessed in the Zechariah thread here in the forum: http://www.mountainretreatorg.net/yabbse/index.php?topic=817.0

Like I said before context not premil/dispensational pretext.

Saints in Christ,
     I highly recommend reading The Place Called Armageddon by Kim Riddlebarger. Though I don't agree with all his conclusions, it is self-evident that he understands the spiritual nature of Armageddon, and knows truth when he reads it.

http://www.mountain-retreat.org/sermons/place_called_armageddon.shtml

"Therefore, the battle of Armageddon has nothing to do with Israel or the armed forces of the nations fighting against armies of Christ. The battle of Armageddon has to do with the fact that the on-going war between the Dragon and his allies (including the beast, the false prophet, Babylon the Great, the harlot, the kings and nations who serve him) and Christ and his church (represented by Mount Zion, and the Mount of Assembly) is coming to an end. The final outcome is never in doubt. For just when it appears as though Satan will overcome the church, Jesus Christ will return and destroy the Dragon and his henchmen, casting them all in the lake of fire where they will be tormented forever and ever."
