I have been reading a Book called Jerusalem CountDown. It is very good book, written by John Hagee. Has any one here ever read the Book. If you haven't read the book I recommend it. Every thing that we see today about Israel,Iran and the United States long with Russia and North Korea. This book tells it all about last days to come and what the world is heading in to.

Have you heard of "Jerusalem Syndrome"?

I'm afraid that, if I had a list of Protestant Ministers I'd be willing to read, John Hagee would be pretty far down. I used to watch him on TV years ago when I myself was a Protestant, and to be quite honest he struck me mostly as a shill for his own eschatological products. He is an entertaining speaker, no doubt, and perhaps even an entertaining author, but I thought his theology was questionable even when I was a Protestant.

I always thought that we should not think about when the end will come in terms of when it will be.

I would rather be mindful of the prophecies of Elder Paissios or Elder Iganatij of Harbin, remembering however that such prophecies are not set in concrete.

Could you point us in the direction of some of those prophecies by the Elders?

Why so narrow minded, every thing that John Hagee wrote in his book Jerusalem Countdown is what is going on right now. we see it on the news or read about it in the paper. Not everything has to be according to the Orthodox Church in teachings. Don't be so narrow minded that a Protestant Pastor wrote a book about what is happening in the middle East. Open your eyes and ears and look and listen to what is going on in the middle East. All of this is according to prophesies from the OT to the NT.

Um, yeah, it does.  While a Protestant might have something worthwhile to read (C.S. Lewis, anyone?), if a Protestant (or anyone else, for that matter) teaches something contradictory to the Church's teaching, it is wrong per se.  When you become Orthodox, whomever catechises you might go over that bit.

Oh, by the way, reasonably correct sentences would be nice every once in a while.  This one makes no sense at all.

I thought he was a shill and a hack back when I was a Protestant as well.

I don't know what has been printed in English, but in Greek there are several books about Elder Paissios and his prophecies.  Elder Ignatij is quoted in the biography of Fr Seraphim Rose.

Oh no, not another prophesy thread...

Seems every time a comet appears (or reappears) there are those who start stirring their Kool-Aid and mutilate themselves. Same holds true for events in the middle east that have been happening for hundreds, thousands, of years.

If I am not mistaken, Scripture states we will not know when "the time comes" . I believe Him.
