Do you see where I am going with this? Where people decide to get weird is when it comes to what you call the “last days.”
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. (Matthew 24:34)
Where it gets weird is that many will now interpret this for the 21st century. (LOL) They will go as far to say that the word “generation” means race. Bahahahahaha!
Maybe Tim LaHaye was thinking the same thing when he wrote his book back in 1972. Funny, that is not what he means. Oh its ok to use the word “generation” for people who are present in the time you live in but when it comes to when Jesus used the word “generation,” that apparently means “race.” Bahahahahaha.
