the real End times may come after 50,000 years or more. That doesn't stop Jesus to make judgment on both the earth and the churches. Whether His
representative will land on earth, or all will be done from the air, does it matter so much. A chastisement would effectively delay the prophecies for
number of years/centuries that the earth doesn't have adequate civilization for those prophecies to be fulfilled.
For the purpose of the argument however, one may say the conditions of end times have been (partially) fulfilled to the extend we have one enacting of
them that is not the fullest future one.
What we see today is partial fulfilment of end time prophecies, not their fullness. Someone may speak for hours how the implanted chip is the mark of
the beast, but neither we are sure nor it is mandatory, as Apocalypse says of the mark. We can have not one but 10 antichrists, still no one of them
controls the entire earth, as the books say. Falling short of the fullest fulfilment, we should look for other explanations. For example, the first
destruction of Jerusalem. Is it a fulfilment of Jesus' prophecy? Yes it is. Is it the final fulfilment? No it is not. And why all those Bible scholars
put the numbers at 2 only? They will start crying "antichrist, antichrist" the moment Jesus' chariots come for the elect ones. No matter if they touch
the land or are suspended in the air (not formal coming).
Because those people honor me with their lips, says the Lord, but their hearts are far from Me.
The "new" theories that were pretty advanced 2 centuries ago, as the rapture theories, are already outdated and use terminology that is not fit to
today's understanding of the world. But no one dares to change them. Today no more of the fear of excomunication from Rome and possible inquisition,
but out of the fear to say something wrong to be thrown in the lake of the fire. What strange, human understanding of a cruel God, who should be
Today's published theories of the Bible are at best limited and narrow framed human theories. What is said as 70 th week 7 year period, might be
actually long periods of time divided between, let say each prophetic day=year to be separated by the rest by ...thousands or more years!
As the history showed for the pause between 69th and 70 th week that lasted only 2000 years, longer than the entire duration of the 69x7 years.
Because it is God who decides, not humans. There is nothing wrong if newer better theories rise, who will not be perfect either. Everything human is
not perfect. That doesn't mean we should be afraid, from men or from God, to say a word of what we think about. For example, I think since the NT
books are written at 2-3 century including the Apocalypse, they might not contain the fullness of revelation made by Jesus Christ.
I think Jesus will act beyond the current understanding for Him and the so called End times. He may send angels at any time, as He sent to Phillip in
Gaza to be taken by air to Azotus. Oh, nobody talks about that, no matter if it is a pope, a patriarch, or a megachurch preacher! Because it shows God
has the free action at any given moment and that goes out of the understanding of the day, and does not contradict any prophecy written in stone or
If Jesus sends representatives and angels to lead us out of Egypt once more, who are we to say No to God's plan? Who are we to say, no, but first Gog
and Magog? John speaks of Gog and Magog after the Millenianl kingdom.
