All of my life I have lived in fear of “the end times”. Fear of “being left behind” of a “tribulation”, “Great Tribulation”, an AntiChrist, “One World Order”, “United Church” and perilous destruction of every living creature on earth.
The future has always looked bleak from the “Biblical perspective” that I was taught despite the fact that one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit is hope and Jesus is supposedly the “hope of the world”.
For the past few years I have been diligently seeking the Lord and His Kingdom like never before. The more he reveals himself; the more I realize how little of him I understand.
I was given some good milk; leading to being born-again but, was very much a new-born babe in Christ because the so-called “solid food” I was fed was spoiled. I have been rebuilding my foundation on the true Cornerstone and realize that I am still very young in my walk with the Lord.
It’s from this place that Holy Spirit has been guiding me into the truth of who God really is and what Jesus has done for us! The New Covenant is far greater than I have ever heard or understood and the reality that God actually lives in us is taking on a much more profound meaning in my life!
I believe the Lord is now working on a redesign of my Eschatology (study of end times) and completely rebuilding a true understanding of the prophecies Jesus gave his Disciples and Apostles almost 2,000 years ago. I do not claim to fully understand this and am not foolish enough to believe that I will not make mistakes but, God is true and will direct my paths more clearly as I grow in better dependence on him in all my ways. (Prov.3:5,6)
This study is from the vantage point that Jesus’ and the Apostles prophecies and at least most of Revelation were completely fulfilled in 70 AD; 40 years (one generation) after his death, burial and resurrection.
Excerpt from “Tomorrowland” ~ “Just imagine, if you glimpsed the future, were frightened by what you saw, what would you do with that information? Would you go to…politicians? [Captains?] and industry. And how would they take this data, facts? Good luck. Any facts they won’t challenge are the ones that keep the wheels greased and the dollars rolling in. Now what if, what if there was a way of skipping the middleman, putting the critical news directly into everyone’s head? The probability of widespread annihalation kept going up. The only way of stopping it is to show it, and to scare people straight. What reasonable human being wouldn’t be galvanized over the by the potential destruction of anything they’ve ever known or loved? To save civilization…I would show it’s collapse. How do you think this vision was received? How do you think the world responded, to imminent doom? They gobbled it up, like [chocolate eclairs]. They didn’t fear their demise, they repackaged it! [If you enjoyed] video games, TV shows, books, movies. The entire world, wholeheartedly embraced the apocalypse. They sprinted towards it with gleeful abandon. Meanwhile, your Earth, was crumbling, all around you. You have equal epidemics of obesity and starvation! Explain that one. Bees, butterflies start to disappear, the glaciers melt, algae blooms all around you, coal mine canaries are all dropping dead, and you won’t take the hint! In every moment, there is the possibility of a better future, yet you won’t believe it! [But] because you won’t believe it, your doom is necessary to make it a reality. So you dwell on this terrible future, and you resign yourselves to it for one reason; because that future doesn’t ask anything of you, TODAY. So yes, you saw the iceberg, you’re the Titanic. But you just steer for it anyway. Full steam ahead. Why? Because you want to sink. You gave up.”
We need to know the truth to be free and shine the light in the darkness!
