    While I agree that the signs were given to the Jews, it was to the Christian Jews, and they were told to flee to the mountains when they saw Jerusalem surrounded by armies. I see nothing to say that that tribulation was for seven years,  Many things are supposed to happen in the tribulation, A bombs etc, In fact one writer said it was the A-BOMB-ination of tribulation.  All supposition  but I would appreciate it if anyone will offer their thoughts on what will happen during the tribulation and the extent of the same.  Of Course Matt, Mark and Luke do not mention the Antichrist in their accounts.

    I have said it often enough and have disgreed on the subject with Covenanter and others.  Preterists have to believe the so called early date for the Revelation  I do not.  I think the historical evidence for a late date is overwhelming.

    I knew a Jewish man, now with the lord, who became a Christian and was cut off by his family, like many others, I expect they held a funeral service or him.
    Our church secretary's grandmother was a deaf and dumb girl living in Ireland.  At the age of 16, she was invited by a friend to gospel preaching, the friend offering to sign for her.  She went back home and said to her father, "I have been to gospel preaching and been converted."  Her father pointed to the door and said, "OUT"  She went and told her friend who found a Christian family to take her in, and cared for her till eventually she came to England and started a Christian deaf and dumb club."
    Both of these people found the Christian family who cared for them.  Knowing their stories I can really understand your position and feel for you. God Bless you.

    I am not a preterist and don't believe that all prophecies have been fulfilled, but then I am not a futurist so I don't believe that all prophecies are in the future.

    OK I have read it again and it is still part of the prophecy of those days.  The captivity would be long and they were to build houses.  Their current troubles were Jacob's trouble but the Lord would bring them back from captivity.  We know, like Daniel, from Jeremiah that the captivity would be 70 years.
    Please show me where this prophecy jumps to the future. 
    Jer 29:28  For therefore he sent unto us in Babylon, saying, This captivity is long: build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
    29  And Zephaniah the priest read this letter in the ears of Jeremiah the prophet.
    30  Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,
    31  Send to all them of the captivity, saying, Thus saith the LORD concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite; Because that Shemaiah hath prophesied unto you, and I sent him not, and he caused you to trust in a lie:
    32  Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite, and his seed: he shall not have a man to dwell among this people; neither shall he behold the good that I will do for my people, saith the LORD; because he hath taught rebellion against the LORD.
    1 ¶  The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
    2  Thus speaketh the LORD God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book.
    3  For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
    4  And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah.
    5  For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
    6  Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?
    7  Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
    8  For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:9  But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. 10 ¶  Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
    It seems I didn't post the above but since you have posted further, very imaginative I will add:
    I see David being raised as the Lord Jesus, the Son of David, and many Jews ended up serving him.

    Thew whole of Jeremiah's  prophecies 
    Thanks, I will read Jeremiah again.  We recently read Jeremiah in our daily readings and I did not understand those verses to be any different from his dire warnings of the then current events and that God would b ring the Jews back from the captivity, then Christ would come, which He did.

    Plucking verses out of context seems to be the norm.  Jacob's trouble only appears once in Jeremiah and Jeremiah said it applied to his day, and that God would bring the exile to an end, which he did.  Just because someone 100 years or so ago placed it in the future, we don't all have to follow like sheep.

    A biblical definition of 'repent'
    Genesis 6:5  And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 ¶  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

    I would say if the are easy believists they are not fundamentalists.

    Yesterday evening I did think of doing pizza, but didn't really fancy it.  I had some tomatoes from the garden that had bits that needed cutting out and cooking, so I did a sort of gratin.  Chopped the tomatoes, some onion and red pepper and added smoked bacon bits (lardons) to mine and mushrooms for Kay.  Put them into two gratin dishes, added some garlic and parsley and put in the oven for ½ hour or so till they were cooked and topped mine with grated Cheddar cheese and Kay's with sliced goats cheese, put them back in the oven till the cheese was melted, then served it with wholegrain bread and butter.

    There is a Baptist church near here that some years ago called a pastor who then tried to make major changes, I think, though not sure, of Charismatic nature. When the membership voted the changes down, the pastor left having been there six months.  He took a great number of the members with him and started a new church. One of their members came to our seniors lunch club, He told me about a year ago that that former pastor was now back as a member.  When I asked how they could possibly accept him as a member when he had done so much damage to the church in the past, he said "I am the only one who has been there long enough to remember him."

    Pastors sometimes change.  Many pastors over here we anti charismatic for many years, and suddenly changed and became Charismatics.  We once had a pastor who when he was called agreed to be one of a team, but the leading elder so to speak.  He soon changed and said he was in charge.

    The Channel Tunnel was closed for a time today as 200 migrants stormed the tunnel entrance, Some getting several miles into the tunnel.  Back in about 1881 a previous attempt to build a tunnel was halted because the Govt. feared it would be used for invasion.  Seems they had good reason.

    Thanks Bro Garry for the update.
    The news over here did make it quite plain that he asked people to say if they were Christians and then shot them seemingly targeting Christians.
    They also said they thought he was British
