    So this is not anything new... you can't claim to be from the IRS either.

    Like I said many times, Newspaper Eschatology.

    The prophecies in the book of Revelation are not supposed to be interpreted by the newspaper, media, youtube, etc. but by the very Word of God itself. We need to find God's interpretation and it only can be found within His Word. Only those with wisdom in Christ can understand. So put the newspaper down indeed!

    Were "all nations" involved in what happened with first century Jerusalem?
    If not, your form of Preterism has gone too far.


    Rev 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.


    G5331
    φαρμακεία
    pharmakeia
    far-mak-i'-ah
    From G5332; medication (“pharmacy”), that is, (by extension) magic (literal or figurative): - sorcery, witchcraft.
    Total KJV occurrences: 3

    Have you ever looked to see how “all nations” is used in scripture?

    For instance:


    All nations surrounded me;
    In the name of the Lord I will surely cut them off.
    — Psalm 118:10

    Do you really think that every nation had surrounded David?

    How many nations attacked Jerusalem during 70 AD?

    A description of a key aspects of the siege is found below.
    Read “Wars of the Jews”, Book 6, chapters 1-7, if you want to understand the temple, and Fort Antonia, and the cloisters that connected them.

    No. But it could be a forerunner to it in establishing that kind of system and control to make people more compliant to it in the future.

    By the way a single story on the interweb doesn't make it true. When all the major media networks start reporting this as fact, then I'll start believing it.

    Well in the U.S. at the time that Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, the U.S. rounded up Japanese U.S. citizens and put them into internment camps. That was totally un-constitutional. The reason for the 2nd amendment is to keep the U.S. government in control, when other means don't work.

    The Covid card is to prevent the spread of Covid between countries.

    The Mark of the beast is the Mark of the Beast's name. It will be used to control people's buying and selling. And does not go into effect until the middle of the 7 years.

    The Covid card is not the Mark of the beast's name.

    Didn't happen in the first century. Jesus did not return to planet earth in first century either.

    I’ve never said that He did. But the Mark of the Beast™ is first century.

    Hammster, the beast person will be destroyed when Jesus returns - in Revelation 19:20.

    The requirement to have one of the three identifiers (to buy or sell) does not go into effect until the last 42 months before Jesus's return. (1) the beast's name (2) the number of his name (3) the mark of his name.

    Since Jesus did not return in the first century, the 42 months were not in the first century, and since the three identifiers in Revelation 13 don't take place until the 42 months - the requirement is still future.

    Not distant future as we are living in the parable of the fig tree generation.

    The advocates of global government found below are not from the first century.

    At one time CBS newsman Walter Cronkite was considered "The Most Trusted Man in America".
    In the video below he said he would gladly "sit at the right hand of Satan", in order to bring about world government.

    This is rather quite interesting. National Geographic regarding Nero being the Beast. 616 rather than 666 etc.
