I have heard that Sir Isaac Newton was very interested in Bible prophecy and trying to determine when the end of the age would occur. I suspect he would have enjoyed this forum if it had existed in his day!
My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises. (Psalm 119:148)
I was never into science, astronomy, outer space, and most all of that stuff and so I don't know much about Isaac Newtown. That is my husband's forte and I think he's probably seen that Apollo movie about 5 million times. Always watching something about space whether it is Star Trek, Star Wars, or some documentary. I wish I had stayed and paid more attention instead of rolling my eyes and saying "Well, enjoy that! It's to the other television for me to watch Lifetime Movies!" (which I don't care to do much anymore)
Eric thinks I have gone nuts (but most people do unfortunately) because of my recent interest in astronomy and the Heavens. However, for him, he is happy about it because he has someone to talk with about outer space (of which I used to immediately mentally check out when he started droning on with that)! We just received a telescope I ordered from Amazon which Eric set up last night and we were zooming in on far away objects, saw a little of the moon but not much because it was really cloudy. It's an awesome telescope though! Only $79 and it has a solar filter that you can use it to look at the sun or take it off and also use at night.
We'll be at the beach in SC during the eclipse and so I mainly bought it so we could get a really good view of that. Now though, I think it will be so much fun to use at home too!
Anyways, back to Sir Isaac... what an amazing and accurate quote! Seems as if he is a follower of Yeshua. Wouldn't it be amazing to meet him in Heaven?
Thanks for the link, Tiffany. I've embedded it so you all can watch it here:
"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."
bernie: EW, I don't know anything on prophecies from Isaiah 23. I think I recall Bill Salus mentioning Lebanon being part of what he considers a prophetic war out of Psalm 83. Other prophecy teachers don't believe as he does,some saying it already been fulfilled.

bernie: I believe Amir and possibly others believe Psalm 83 was fulfilled in Israel's war for independence, or in 67/73. I don't have an opinion either way, because I haven't read or studied it.

bernie: I do think it's possible that if France, the EU, or the UN try to go in and disarm Hezbollah it could start WWIII.
