i happen to have a bible handy.. well three.. but anyways i read the verse myself and here is the prophecy:
I will bring back my exiled people Israel; they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them," says the Lord your God.
there is no timeline what so ever given, the "promised land" is not exactly where israel now resides. we know this because the bible gives a good enough description of its location in the old testament.
that prophecy isn't just completely vague, the way you presented it was completely false. Nostradamus had way more success than the bible at predicting things x.X
It's kind of funny, I got half way through the list and I realized, there is no way for a non christian to discern spiritual things and physical things.
I can't go through the whole list obviously. But some that a lot of people get confused with is that god says he is 1 and he also says he is 3.
How can god be 1 person while being 3 people? Well, this is one of those spiritual things that only the holy ghost (1 of the 3) can reveal to you. I can sum it up the best way I can though.
Basically he is of 1 mind, and 1 mind controls all 3 persons. The father, the son, and the holy spirit. They all have different roles, but they are all the same.
I encourage you to, instead of reading 1 particular verse, find that chapter and read it. You can take a couple sentences out of any book and put it in any context you like. The bible stresses you read things in their proper context, and I can assure you all of those are taken out of context.
ive read the bible on multiple occasions and actually used to believe in god. i fully understand the three in one, the trinity, god/jesus/holy spirit, no one to the father except thru the son, accepting jesus and allowing the holy spirit in your heart etc etc i would never use that particular one as a contradiction because even ill admit its kinda weak.
I know its off topic, but.. do you know dantes inferno? its cool and all, definitely the best. but its only 1 of 3. check out the other two (just for fun) they are awesome. in the last one (paradiso) he tries to describe the holy trinity as he ascends to the highest reaches of heaven. he fails to describe it, but i love his attempt
