first of all, good to hear Phantomfire back in discussion.
Especially if I am raptured, there will be less people in this forum and elsewhere to witness the truth
a joke isn't it?
The rapture is Biblical, while the Great Warning is only based on apparitions that are not approved, unlike Fatima. Fatima itself does not speak of
Great Warning. But let say they match in the part of the Chastisement.
The nature of the nuclear war requires preemptivenes when it comes to massive strike. Read Nyquist who has tons of negativism towards Russia but says
some things that are true for all nuclear powers. To start a successful WW3 and to survive, even to win, a nation should prepare well in advance. ANd
that prep in economy etc cannot go unnoticed for years. He has excellent articles in WND.com, don't know if they are still online. Search for VRYAN.
His latest works in his own website are less impressive though.
Read also Lunev's testimony before US congress and later interviews.
I don't believe any interpretation no matter how big "apparition specialists" speak, only feel we are put in a too big delusion to know the true
exit way. Still, it may not be the great delusion of the antichrist.
As of nuclear winter, reportedly it could be made by 100mt be it a single bomb or multiple smaller ones, aywhere on the surface (i.e. Russia can
explode them in Siberia and we all got it around the planet, or India, or Israel). Nobody says how many mt are necessary for the continental-wide
nuclear tornado (Rand McNally) or for ignition of atmospheric N2 in fusion chain reaction, feared by Oppenheimer's colleagues at the time of the
first bomb. Today's warheads with average 200-550kt are nowhere near to Hiroshima. The essence of the reaction is different ways beyond in
temperature and pressure, therefore the fireball not only destroys as in Hiroshima, but burns and makes parts of the fireball the buildings within
certain range. We just don't study these things that are known for decades. this stuff is now freely available online.
And what is unknown to us, we can guess.
Well, when I see a pyramid over Kremlin, shown on each major Russian TV channel, and then in China million-wide city in broad daylight, not restricted
to be upload on Chinese video hosts and then to be copied to youtube, that means something big is there and they are willing to show it now. We are
talking of weapons way beyond our imagination. The thing we don't know - is who is behind them. Who are the bad guys. Because Russia converts, yes?
So the big bad guy is someone else. I don't say it is America. America doesn't exist in the End Times prophecy, while now it is N1 superpower. Much
water will pass between now and then.
Let break with taboos imposed on us in the Middle ages that were not a part of the early church. The earth is not only round, and does not only rotate
around the sun (denied by the catholic church in Galileo time, with quite brute methods for those who did not enjoy papal friendship as Galileo did).
The earth rotates in the galaxy as well, together with the sun. I don't have to convince anyone who haven't read his astronomy textbook and doesn't
want to move beyond a level of knowledge inherited by centuries that proved to be wrong. The Sunday mass preachers won't tell that either.
Read Genesis 6.
By the way, where are consecrated all Sunday mass hosts? Did you see them present on the altar during consecration? Or on Saturdays? If this is true -
that most Sunday hosts are not consecrated and distributed to mass people (who outside USA do not drink the Holy Blood either), that is a quite big
crime only step from the total cease of the Eucharist. We know where it leads - to the False prophet. So when I am talking of ecclesiastical masonry
that shaped 20th century, I am talking of that, and I am pro-pope, not anti-pope! Let it be crystal clear. It might turn at the end of the day, the
Russian Orthodox liturgy is valid, while some of the Western ones are not. Under the Western I understand not only Catholic, but also let say Anglican
and US episcopal church who have practices way beyond the apostolic tradition. SO who needs conversion? You will say: Russia. OK Russia converted, and
glorifies God in authentic way. Some in the West, incl in the Cath. church do not want to hear of conversion, and stamp medieval brands upon
everything that flies. Too bad! Perhaps "the thief cries: catch the thief" I also wonder the particular state and diocese where the false prophet
will rise according to La Salette- a catholic bishop. Not orthodox.
