ok before you run me off on a factual penalty, lemme source some info
first of all theres the part where the beast is revealed, and i believe the recent popularity of this atheist, illuminati trending that is going on in
pop culture is a strong reference to this, people just are losing faith for no reason
then there is the seven bowls that the bible speaks of
1. grievous sores- mass outbreaks of stds
2. sea turns to blood, river turns to blood- massive oil spills in certain parts of the world frequently within the past 3 years
3. massive heat waves- scientists constantly warning us about solar flares that are supposed to happen and are happening
i believe that we are in this stage trying to make it past the seven bowls before the war with the devil
-edit also, im also asking which side you would be on , i would like to have this answer more importantly , forgive me for not sourcing
edit on 3-4-2014 by Onyxzyv because: (no reason given)
ok, so in regards to sides. its a bit silly to even consider for someone such as myself (Atheist).
Because then we would have to consider what such an event would look like.
If some paranormal event like nature decided to throw a pink Floyd laser light show and a Hollywood style deity descended from the cloud, making it
without a doubt that if not God, then at least a being far more superior to myself was here, real, etc...and was fighting some earthling schmuck in
what seemed a clearcut fight of good (ideals) verses evil, I would like to think the reasonable ones would accept first off what was happening (ok,
some being...perhaps a biblical god, nature unknown but it doesn't matter at that point) and would choose to back up the good guy if needed.
But things would need to be clearcut. People see antichrists and false prophets all the time. Anything less than a crazy light show and
miracles..proper ones, not david blane messing with peoples head type..and I am sideline skeptic.
Keep in mind, I see humanity as a family though. So, any being that comes here and starts smashing up and killing our family defaults into pretty dang
evil...that is who I would fight against. Respect and love is a two way street.
But we are no where even close to any seal breaking. if anything, you can seal by seal prove we are going in the opposite direction of said
revelations. we are more peaceful now than ever in history, our medicine has put most diseases in check, etc.
As far as atheism being a thing..well, its not in regards to revelations. Persecution for a religion was a ancient rome thing where when Christians
were found, they were tossed into arenas to fight with lions and other type horrible things..of course then Christians turned around and did that to
pagans and muslims, muslims did that to other brands of islam and things they don't agree with, etc...Atheism simply has walked away from all that
cycle of violence and persecution...again, the opposite of the biblical description in regards to seals breaking.
So, ultimately, it seems your more hopeing that the end is nigh..but if we use revelations as a sort of sign to point out the end, then it seems we
are very, very far from even the starting.
Sorry mate...your gonna have a full, long life...so get back to school and learn a trade already.
