    Do you pray for God's Kingdom to Come?

    I wonder if individuals really realize what they are are praying for when they pray for God's Kingdom to come? For his name to be sanctified, and his will to be done on earth, as it is in heaven? Could it be, that the answer to that prayer, might shock this World Senseless? That it may prove out to be a prayer they were sorry that they ever prayed? Lets face the facts! When it does come, it will mean something has to go; something the World would rather see remain? What will be the conditions, or events taking place when it does finally come? Events leading up to its arrival? Lets examine them, now:

    No one can argue, that World War One that broke out in the year 1914 didn't look like the beginning of the composite sign of the coming of Christ because the majority of the Nations of the World were involved in that conflict. The Governing Body of the Watchtower Society will tell us that, that prophecy was fulfillied in that year, with the ensuing World War that broke out in the year 1939 a major part of that Prophecy; with it too involving most of this World.

    Their interpretation of that has always bothered me though, because even though it looked like their reasoning was correct, there was something else foretold in that Prophecy, that cast a great shadow of doubt on their reasoning. It's true everything in this following Prophecy has occurred since the year 1914, but this following scripture that Jesus foretold was not given first in time, or rank; there was one other that took precedence over it. That, as a matter of fact, is still occuring at this present moment in time. Look at verse seven first:

    7"Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various." places."{Matthew 24:7 NIV}

    So, a mere cursory superficial reading of that would seem to tell us they are correct in their conclusion. But are they really? Look now at verse six:

    6 "You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, because these things must take place, but the end is not yet." {Matthew 24:6 HCSB}

    Were not World War 1 &Two, Wars? Haven't there been Wars and rumors of Wars ever since? Do we not have the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Has not the Iranian President threatened to blow Israel and the United States off the the map? Has not North Koreah threatened their neighbor south Koreah? With weapons pointed at China as well? But the end is still NOT YET? Because those things had to take place first? Does that not put Matthew 24:7 ahead, in the future? Would that not coincide with the time of World Peril the Prophet Daniel foretold to occur when Michael stands up? Many believe the great Tribulation Jesus foretold and Daniels time of World Peril are the same tribulation, but look at them closely, they are not the same. The Tribulation Jesus Foretold was to be cut short to save the lives of the Chosen ones, who are all with him at Armageddon; but Daniels time of trouble is abruptly halted at Armageddon. Daniels time of World peril is the most frightening time of all human history, and is not cut short, but allowed to run right into Armageddon. {Matthew24:21,22} {Revelation 17:14} Matthew shows us just when the Chosen ones are delivered from that great triubulation, when Michael actually stands up, and he gathers all of the Chosen Ones. Matthew tells us: "After the tribulation of those days then it goes on to talk about their gathering from the four winds from one extremity of the heavens to their other extremity. {Matthew 24:29-31}

    It will be when Michael stands up Nation against Nation and Kingdom against Kingdom will be fulfilled, and the Prophet Jeremiah foretold that time of World peril with the following words: {Matthew 24:7}

    31 "The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth, for the LORD will bring charges against the nations; he will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword,' "
    declares the LORD. 32 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Look! Disaster is spreading from nation to nation; a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the earth." 33 At that time those slain by the LORD will be everywhere—from one end of the earth to the other. They will not be mourned or gathered up or buried, but will be like refuse lying on the ground. 34 Weep and wail, you shepherds; roll in the dust, you leaders of the flock. For your time to be slaughtered has come; you will fall and be shattered like fine pottery. 35 The shepherds will have nowhere to flee, the leaders of the flock no place to escape. 36 Hear the cry of the shepherds, the wailing of the leaders of the flock, for the LORD is destroying their pasture.37 The peaceful meadows will be laid waste because of the fierce anger of the LORD." {Jeremiah 25:31-37 NIV} Ezekiel also has something to add to this massive slaughter:

    18 "This is what will happen in that day: When Gog {satan} attacks the land of Israel, {Spititual Israel} my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD. 19 In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 The fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign LORD. Every man's sword will be against his brother." {Ezekiel 38:18-21 NIV} The Prophet Zephaniah predicted how great this massive slaughter would be in these following words:

    14 "The great Day of the LORD {JEHOVAH} is near, near and rapidly approaching. Listen, the Day of the LORD—there the warrior's cry is bitter. 15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of destruction and desolation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness, 16 a day of trumpet [blast] and battle cry against the fortified cities, and against the high corner towers. 17 I will bring distress on mankind, and they will walk like the blind because they have sinned against the LORD. {JEHOVAH} Their blood will be poured out like dust and their flesh like dung. 18 Their silver and their gold will not be able to rescue them on the day of the LORD's wrath. The whole earth will be consumed by the fire of His jealousy. For He will make a complete, yes, a horrifying end of all the inhabitants of the earth." {Zephaniah 1:14-18 HCSB}

    What we have been reading here, is the final outcome of Armageddon, of which Isaiah the Prophet has this to add:

    1 "Look, the LORD is stripping the earth bare and making it desolate.He will twist its surface and scatter its inhabitants: 2 people and priest alike, servant and master, female servant and mistress, buyer and seller, lender and borrower, creditor and debtor. 3 The earth will be stripped completely bare and will be totally plundered, for the LORD {JEHOVAH} has spoken this message. 4 The earth mourns and withers; the world wastes away and withers; the exalted people of the earth waste away. 5 The earth is polluted by its inhabitants, for they have transgressed teachings,overstepped decrees, and broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore a curse has consumed the earth, and its inhabitants have become guilty; the earth's inhabitants have been burned, and only a few survive." {Isaiah 24:1-6 HCSB}

    This is when the entire empire of Religion, "BABYLON THE GREAT" on this earth gets their just just deserts; they have transgressed the teachings, overstepped Jehovah's Decrees, broken the everlasting covenant. When the smoke of Armageddon clears, you'll find only a few survivors; just as Jesus had said: "Only a few were on the road to life. So much for any unnumbered gread crowd coming out of the great tribulation. There's a great crowd alright, but all dead. {Matthew 7:13,14,22,23}

    Do you pray the Model Prayer? "Let your Kingdom Come?" What you have just read is what you're praying for to occur, and you will not be disappointed, it will come! It will occur!

    Did you notice? Millions of baptized Christian's will be slaughtered at Armageddon? Obviously! They didn't have it quite right. Did they? Wannabe

    I used to. I used to pray for The KIngdom to come and completely destroy this world and burn it to a cynder, to a crisp. But then that would mean No more METAL MUSIC, UFC, hot chics in bikins...........oh yeah and it would mean the BIBLE was 100% true and its NOT.

    I think one of the most-ignored statements Jesus ever made is that he said the "wars and reports of wars" were a sign, NOT that the end is imminent, but rather a sign that THE END IS NOT YET. Any who claim that wars and reports of wars are a sign that the end is here or even near IGNORE JESUS' words.
