A question and answer essay on the possibilites of Armageddon in our lifetimes.
During our days on earth we have seen manís perpetual desire to fight for a perfected world. A man-made utopia.
Even though man knows he will die, he wants to make his mark on earth. Even though he also knows his life is only a minute drop of the universal measure of existence. Man dreams of heaven, and fears hell; and yet in his search for answers and meaning he
becomes blind to truth by giving into the sanctimonious temptations
of a ego-centric, self-centered mortal existence. This only prevents
the soul from reaching its potential in providing the wisdom for answers
to our questions of purpose.
Does the need to be Godís chosen justify the need of powerful
men to play savior Ė seeking to be a boss, a king, a tyrant or dictator? Would God really approve a mortal man to be his spokesperson unless personally trained by his son Jesus, as
what happened with the Apostles and their teachings in the New
Testament of the Bible, of which most of what Christianity is based on?
Do we believe that men who say by their own reckoning they have earned the privilege of being such a spokesperson? Beware of false prophets the Bible tells us.
With our own strong personal relationship with God, without
the interference of others mortal men, us humans can pursue the happiness of knowing God by simply using his greatest gift to humanity Ė our soul. A soul that is Godís communication
bridge to us Ė like a cell phone.
Any man who interferes with othersí relationship with God,is disrespecting God; and interfering with the soul of another man
is doing just that.
It most assuredly would seem to be a logical assumption that the spread of Christianity since the evolution of todayís modern civilization shows Godís favor. It would also seem logical to thus determine that Christís teachings were instrumental in the understanding of manís purpose on earth.
Life on earth has become Godís test for man to earn a place
in heaven. The Bible tells us that Godís final test for man on
earth will be Armageddon. A battle of judgement for a place in his kingdom. Ėthe basic battle between good and evil.
Before God created man, he created angels, who had a place with God in heaven. But they were not perfect, and angels emerged who rejected God and His love for them. So God banished them from heaven to another place Ė
which we humans refer to as hell.
(Any place without God is a hell, right?).
The spoiled banished angels became devils, which stoked evil as their
weapon to wreak vengeance on God.
After God created man, the devil used his weapon of evil to attack man, Godís other children, to avenge their banishment to hell. The temptation of sin became the battleground for manís soul, starting with the Garden of Eden.
Man lost the battle in the Garden of Eden, so he was cast out to another place by God. Was it earth? Or another place? Although we know that ventually man did come to earth. To prove himself to God and earn the grace and love needed to enter heaven for eternity.
So while on earth man is continuously tested in the battle of good and evil. There is war and sin to experience as the devilís time is
limited to spoil man forever in Godís eyes Ė an act of revenge for the devilís side, who we believe is led by their leader Ė Satan (Lucifer).
The devilís time ends in the days of final judgement on this world called earth Ė it is called Armageddon.
By winning a battle of Armageddon would Satan then consider himself an almighty god? HmmÖ.
So it would seem logical that leading up to Armageddon the devil would try to confuse mortal men; testing man with false promises of
immortality in his name, and that somehow the killing of Godís children was a good thing Ė a way to go to a heaven the Satan would love to rule the loss souls who did his bidding, rather than that of the true God.
Men are thus deceived into believing that eternal glory and a special place in a heaven of salvation awaits them from a god in a kingdom set aside for his followers who blindlessly obey a selfish faith of loyalty to do whatever is necessary to earn a special favor in this so-called world of happiness. Even if it means killing Godís children.
Is this the bliss of ignorance?
The more the devil could fool such evil men with scorned, hurting souls Ė the stronger the devilís influence can become. The more emboldened Satan would become.
The conclusion couldnít be any more evident. It couldnít be any more logical.
The killing of Godís children by his children and in Godís name is the ultimate betrayal.
As is the stealing of Godís property Ė the soul.
The ultimate insult and blasphemy that has only one result. The banishment from heaven forever by joining the devil.
Once the experience of Armageddon passes, the devil and his subjects will be cast forever in a world of hell.
The entire experience of Armageddon is full of anit-Christ moments.
Anti-Christians ripen the breeding ground for the anti-Christ.
