    To Litsme thistime" I`ll add that when Christ was on earth Isreal had been scattered 600 years and that would put Judah captive 400 years at the point or to mark time in undrrstanding. The 10 tribes were took captive by Syria 600 years before Christ and went over the Caucas Mnts. And settle in Europ and are the Christians Nations. Judah return or most of them to Jerusalem after their captivety.I hope I got it right itsme thistime. What a handle you have.
  • Itsme Thistime
    Mark 13:28 Christ tells us "Learn the parable of the fig tree" letting us know that it is imperative that those who follow Him learn this scripture. This let's us know we are in the last generation RIGHT NOW, because Judah had not been in Jerusalem since before Christ was born, until 1948 when they were aloud to return after WWII. To rephrase for better understanding, this parable let's us know that the end wouldn't come until Judah returned to Jerusalem. Judah was taken captive by the babylonians hundreds of years before Christ was on the earth, and had not returned until May 15, 1948, signifying the beginning of th last generation, or "the generation of the fig tree"
