I believe you'd have to nail down the definition of 'before,' I suppose if that means immediately before, that's one thing and if it means a while before,that means something else.
Xandit, I think before means before! Prior to God's time of judgement. Remember it will come as a thief in the night, peace and security being the word of the day. So before as in "immediately before" shouldn't be any different, should it?
If I make someone think that really makes my day.
It isn't very thought provoking to be in agreement with everyone.
