    The verse you have quoted does not refer to the Day of Christ that we should be waiting for. Everyone should be terrified to be a living flesh and blood man on the day mentioned in 2 Peter 3:12

    The United States is never mentioned in the Bible, other than being included in "the nations." The USA has no special purpose or role in God's plan of redemption.

    Sorry to burst your Americocentric bubble.

    The Mormons would love what you're saying, though.

    Actually if you study it out, America is the only world power (beast) to come up (Rev 13:11) at the decline of the persecuting power of Rev 13:1, when the Papacy was overthrown by General Berthier of France in 1798... if you want, I can post a detailed rundown of the study.

    President Obama once said "The end of the republic has never looked better"

    Please find the link below....



    Should I say, that it was an illusion of a republic, whereby the American people had thought, that they had an input to a system that was biased against them from the very beginning.

    The Black Dragon of Apostasy certainly arose when Benedict sat, meaning resigned.

    Now all that awaits is a major event, the burning of the cities of the world by the Black Dragon, who will spew both the fire of destruction and also the acid/poison, so to hypnotically draw those weak in faith near him and into his controlling arms.

    Babylon rising!

    Yeah... this can last one more day or another 30+ years. Praise GOD! The longer the better. A Father is doing everything to save all He made. So... I say nothing.. very humbled to wait.. to do the job my Father started. I am right now living for ever..so... matters not.

    Every period of history has its own immorality. In previous generations we've had Jim Crow laws, Apartheid, slavery, genocide of indigenous peoples, religious wars, persecution of minorities, witch hunts/burnings, crusades, pogroms, serfdom, and much else.

    3Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. 4They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.”5But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. 6By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. 7By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. (2 Peter 3:3-7)

    The gospel has reached globally. The falling away from the faith once given to the Saints is being witnessed today. The religious seek worldly unity, by saying peace and safety, whilst the nihilists who unleash destruction, are herding the religious like blind cattle right into the enemies dragnet. The Hegelian Dielectic is being played in spades.

    In the 20th century the enemies of the cross declared that they have killed God and in the 21st century they seek to kill humanity that was created in the Image of God, by shoving down everyone's throat an androgenous dysfunctional family, a genderless transhumanist society that has no spiritual or physical link to the Creator.

    This is the hijacking of Creation by Luciferean elites who once used religion as their means to an end, but now have abandoned the monopoly on religion and have sought to dismember and to dissolve it from within. They can only achieve this if they bring all denominations under the one hierarchical umbrella of control.

    Never before in history has Christianity faced a period of trial, that seeks to totally eradicate it by moulding it to the image of the beast.

    Offcourse a rationale and sensible Christian will not dismiss the events unfolding, by assuming that they are the same as history presented it, rather we are in unexplored territory.

    Grace will be removed as soon as the global Christian persecution and Calvary begins without let.

    Many Christians are asleep and not knowing that they are future sheep for the conversion or for slaughter.

    It is not too late to cut ties with the Babylon rising. My recommendation to Church leaders is don't unite, least you take responsibility of the blood of the innocent, that will lie squarely on your hands.

    Break away from Rome immediately and strengthen your spiritual forts and prepare for spiritual battle. We are under attack and the numbers are stacked up against us, so hold firm.

    Well, I already knew Trump is anti-Christ, so maybe there was something to this end times stuff after all....



    Seriously, I read Hal Lindsey as a teen and it messed with my head. Never again will I fill my religious devotion full of fantasies worthy of a comic book. I'm an amillenialist and sticking with that.

    I really don’t know if this is it... or who is who... but we are seeing biblical principles that are laid out in prophecy... being founded and prepared...

    This thing may turn another 1000 years or more...

    But the Bible is definitely full on prophetic and right in step with global events.

    I am a “Zionist”... but dispensational theology is so at odds with itself!

    I also don’t believe a temple being built is what scripture is talking about...

    I see Jesus as God and the Temple of God. I also see God having deeeeeep plans for Israel per Romans 11:25-36 ... but... I do not think the branch that wants the temple to be rebuilt is quite on point.

    I do think Islam is full of real people that Jesus Loves and are atoned for, but the theology itself and the full on devotees are as “Anti Christ” as it gets. I’m personally expecting the Anti Christ to come from Islamic ranks...

    However... it’s all just speculation.

    Prophecy obsession is dangerous stuff... Look at Newton for instance. He was obsessed with biblical prophecy but he was basically a closet heretic, as he did not really believe Jesus was divine. He took his eyes off Jesus and into the Bible as divination.

    I am very series my friend!

    I will reclarify to you my claim as per my quote below.....

    Please remember, we are discussing the specific context of an Image to the Beast as opposed to the Image of God. There has never been a time, historically speaking that society on a global scale, had imposed an androgynous, genderless and transhumanist law society, with the agenda of destroying the family, changing of the definition of marriage, changing of the definition of gender, changing of the definition of humanity itself.

    We are at the cross roads where all the above definitions which are tied to the Image of God, are being attacked globally. I stated previously in post -#52 the following......

    The perilious times we are living in, has never before been realised on a global scale. There is being made every attempt at rejecting the Image of God by seeking to replace it with an Image of the Creature/Beast. The Beast Image is emerging and it bears absolutely no ties to God. We are talking about a hijacking of humanity by the enemy who delve into eugenics, who seek to destroy it, because they have always hated it historically speaking, but this time it is different, they no longer want to tame it or quarantine it , rather they want it eradicated forever.

    If I can bring to light a quote from Daniel to close of my clarification of what I meant by my claim.....

    At that time Michael, the archangel who stands guard over all of humanity, will stand up in defence. Then there will be a time of anguish greater than any since nations first came into existence. But at that time every one of your people whose name is written in the book will be salvaged. 2Many of those whose bodies lie dead and buried will rise up, some to everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting disgrace. 3Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever. 4But you, Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal up the book until the time of the end, when many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase.”

    11From the time the daily sacrifice is stopped and the sacrilegious object that causes desecration is set up to be worshiped, there will be 1,290 days. 12And blessed are those who wait and remain until the end of the 1,335 days!

    The sacrilegious object that causes desecration of the Image of God, forfeits the salvation of the cross (daily sacrifice).

    Are we here yet!

    Very close........
