    What you are really saying is that after the coming of the Messiah and his immediate followers, nothing has been added to the Bible. However, does this mean that things grew quiet? I would not say so in my life and I am sure others would not say so as well who know God. However, those that did not know God during much of the ongoings in the OT on the other side of the world probably thought nothing was going on at all. In comparison to me you might say that you are on the other side of the world shouting that nothing is going on.

    However, in regards to Biblical prophesy it would appear that Israel, as foretold by the prophets, will be the focus of end time world events. Now grab a chair and watch the fireworks!!! Oh yea, I almost forgot, it might behoove one to be ready for the return of the Messiah. 😉

    I have heard of statues of Mary crying blood, images of Jesus on a slice of toast, ...
    But if you want really big events then plenty of people have blamed God for HIV (plague) and the Indonesian Tsunami (parting seas?). Maybe you are just listening to the wrong preachers? Nobody would have known that the Biblical plagues had anything to do with God unless Moses took credit for it.

    Not that I believe God is giving us signs of Mary in our breakfast food nor killing people with AIDS etc, but you make a valid point. Had Moses not said that God was responsible, who would have known? How would you know today if God was working or at work?

    im an atheist, but even i must admit that if someone says now that they hear the voice of god... we bang them up in a very secure padded room. that might be the reason for the lack of godness etc... maybe

    Unless they hold offices such as president or Prime Minister, then we believe them...Of course God spoke to George & Tony and told them to invade Iraq...
