I imagine a few are familar with what is out there or extreme levels you can push yourself on a spiritual level.
I'm sure it would have to be--otherwise, what would be the point?
I guess what I am getting at is just say there are a few that have developed in a sense of wisdom/spirtual sense beyond most people's understanding without seeing or experiencing, could this ever be made public?
How could it? That's a bunch of fairytale nonsense anyway--if any thing is 'anti'christ it is religion, and religion isn't going to be able to recognize esoteric truths---dogma makes one blind to that kind of thing. They would be the only ones seeing something good as 'anti'christ anyway--paranoia or a guilty conscience, is what I say is the cause. :shk:
Or would this fall in the hands of a global uniting equaling antichrist,etc?
However, the Apocalypse technically refers to the unveiling of God, in his guise as the Messiah, and not to all of the destruction of the world which will accompany God's Revelation of Himself to Humankind.
An Apocalypse in the terminology of early Jewish and Christian literature, is a revelation of hidden things given by God to a chosen prophet; this term is more often used to describe the written account of such a revelation.
The Apocalypse entails a revelation of mysteries, things which lie beyond the ordinary range of human knowledge. God gives to prophets or saints instruction in regard to hidden matters, whether things altogether foreign to human experience, or merely events in human history which have not yet come to pass
The element of the mysterious, apparent in both the matter and the manner of the writing, is a marked feature in every typical Apocalypse. The literature of visions and dreams has its own traditions, which are remarkably persistent; and this fact is unusually well illustrated in the group of Jewish (or Jewish-Christian) writings under consideration.
