Jesus Christ did not walk on water, but ice

Dr. Doron Nof, a Florida State University Professor of Oceanography, says that rare conditions could have conspired to create hard-to-see ice on the Sea of Galilee in Northern Israel that a person could actually have walked on back when Jesus is said to have walked on the water.

Professor Nof studied a small section of the cold fresh water surface of the Sea of Galilee near the town of a salty spring along the lake's western shore the floating ice on the lake.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A Florida State University Professor's explanation that Jesus actually was walking on a patch of ice in the Sea of Galilee and not performing a supernatural miracle, is evidence that the Return of Jesus Christ to earth is drawing very close. Professor Nof's research was done in the area, some 10,000 sq. ft. on the coast of the Sea of Galilee on the western side of the lake near the town of Tabgha.

The main problem with the professor's research is that he studied the wrong side of the lake and the section of the lake that supposedly Jesus Christ had walked on the water. Tabgha is the traditional site of the Feeding of the 5,000 and the act of walking on the water. However, the biblical account of this supernatural miracle says that it happened on the eastern side of the lake near Bethsaida; and that is found in John 6:1-21. The phrase, "went over the sea", used in the text is a nautical term; that's found in John 6:1, 17. This indicates that these events occurred on the eastern side of the lake, not on the western side.

This report is evidence of the soon Coming of Jesus Christ as related by Peter in II Peter 3 where he said when the time approaches, people will deny miracles performed by Jesus Christ; for example: the Creation, all in six days, and that the world-wide Flood ever took place; this is found in II Peter 3:1-7.

Jesus Christ performed His miracles while here on earth to confirm He was the Son of God in the flesh and His Second Coming, a fulfillment of Bible prophecy, will indeed be another miracle that will happen seemingly very soon.
