    My broad understanding is this, according bible prophecy; The EU, led by the antichrist will invade The holy lands. a Russian, Muslim World, and alien army, led by an alien, will invade the holy lands. The jews will be persecuted, again. The Catholic Church will fall and after that, the leader of the EU will be revealed as the anti christ. Satan himself will inhabit the antichrist and will do battle with jesus. The faithful shall be taken unto god before the horror starts, others may be saved, but only later. There will be years of peace and stability. More destruction. God wins. The End?

    For any of you who have seen t2: Remember the scene where she's carving "No Fate" on the picnic table at the school? Is there fate?

    My instinct would be to stop the ascent of the euroweenie socialist empire to global dominance, seeing as they've recently revealed to be operating from not much more than a blatantly antiamerican agenda. Are we to try?

    Where is the U.S. in all this? Defeated before the story starts? That pisses me off, and it's not happening. Not if there's anything I can do about it.

    You understand it partially, some of it even I am not sure about. I have seen stories bout the "aliens" actually being bad angels "demons" that were cast out of heaven with Satan. The Sethites are who they are supposed to be. In the Bible it says that in the end times, the world will be as it was before Noah. Some believe that the "demons" in the time of Noah tried to breed with the humans so that the Son of God (Jesus) could not be used to save all humans as once they mixed, there would no longer be any pure humans and that is why God detroyed the world. Some believe that they will try this again and that we will think they are aliens when in reality they are demons.

    As for the USA, it is pretty much a concensus that we will be a non-player. Many believe this is so as many of our leaders and residents will be called in the Rapture therefore, not leaving much left behind but chaos. Others believe that we will be a non-player either due to major disasters that strike us or because of a financial collapse.

    But keep reading! You are starting to get the message.

    BTW: One thing that will happen before the rapture and will be a major indicator that "the end truly is near" is that Damascus will be destroyed and nothing will be able to inhabit her. Sounds like Damascus could be nuked. That then leads to the 7 year peace treaty that starts the Tribulations. If the USA takes part in nuking Syria because of WMD's or such, that is what could push us into being a non-player. The rest of the world would likely then turn their backs on us......

    I guess all we get to do is sit back and watch. So much for free will.

    Yup.

    I am not sure what you are referring to here, this could be the Gog-Magog war and not the main antichrist method of operation.

    It isn't only the catholic church specifically, but they DO play an incredibly overwhelming part in the one-world religion as most of the "religious" base of beliefs. The antichrist will be worshipped through being promoted by a false prophet and the catholic church will be directly responsible for steering his direction --much like they were able to bring hitler to power.

    Others may be saved later as they come to Jesus as lord and savior. There will not be one on the planet directly after rapture.

    No. Satan rises again after a thousand more years to try again and will then ultimately be defeated once and for all. This will be the final judgement.

    Yes. It is written by inferrence that we have free will to choose our ways of going through life, and ultimately chosing if we "win" or "lose". -But, like a chess match between a first time player and Gary Kasperov, the outcome is a given and whichever choice you make will determine the circumstances in which the game is won or lost. -Although the outcome will be the same.

    In a sense, you have only the free will to do what you want within the given parameters of total outcome. BUT YOU DO HAVE THE CHOICE.

    It would be against God's word to not accept proper stewardship and respoinsibility for defending what He has given us, and also the spread of His word. In essence, we are doomed to ultimate failure but called to do the work. -And we will be rewarded for our efforts in the end.

    Either that or completely irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.

    :)

    You still could, you get to help run things when He rules on Earth, -Which is BEFORE Satan gets released his last time to try to subvert us again. -And if I remember correctly, you WILL have a highly capable body replacing the wimpy one we have now.

    Imagine being able to teleport and walk on water.

    Free will within certain parameters?? Did God say this or is this your interpretation again?

    If you are going to be a wanker with every post, does it matter?
