Most likely man's doing yes, but probably disguised in God's doing."all warfare is based on deception". It's wacky to think that after a couple false prophecies people haven't opened their eyes. Im starting to feel alot of people understand what's going on. It's also crazy to think that there are "elders" who have never had kids going around telling people how to run there families...
DeeGee » Since it's all about killing humans, if God could almost wipe out everyone human being during the Flood & plans on destroying humans again at Armageddon then why not just destroy Adam & Eve before they had any children and start over again, and keep starting over if necessary, until he got the perfect couple, since it's all about killing humans?
Armageddon, as described in the Bible, isn't about killing the innocent. It comes when a man of war invades a nation of God's people to gain a land that was given them by God. When Judah received the blessing of his father, Jacob, he was told:
Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee. Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. (Gen. 49:8-10)
In other words, even though Joseph received the birthright and a greater land, Judah was to hold the scepter in the land bearing his father's name. Satan, who hates the Jews for this reason, thus drives the Beast to invading the land with the intention of killing the Jews and occupying their land -- land which was given them by God until the coming of the Messiah. The Jews held the scepter until the coming of Christ, then lost it in consequence of them killing him. Then, in the latter days, they were, also in the fulfillment of the above, gathered back into those lands and will remain until the Lord's second coming.
At the end of Armageddon, only the military forces of the Beast will be destroyed, save a sixth part of them. We are given no reason why they are allowed to escape but I think it's safe to not say it was because they were Jehovah's Witnesses.
Armageddon is about war. I suspect when the Lord comes in the clouds, the Antichrist will attack him in a final act of maniacal fury with the weapons at his disposal. Zechariah writes, "And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongues shall consume away in their mouths." (14:12)
Christ will not be the aggressor in Armageddon, but he will come as the defender of Judah. In that day, the entire nation of Israel will be converted in a single day and from then on they will be Christians. But Armageddon is not the day of Judgment. In that day, the Lord will cleanse the wicked from the earth. Those who are slain in that day will not cease to exist as the JWs teach, but will, in effect, be moved en mass from Earth to (as one theologian put it) a penalty box. The idea is to keep them from corrupting those who are left.
The JWs have never been able to show me where their view of Armageddon as a great storm to sweep the earth destroying God's enemies once and for all. But those who live good, decent lives will remain regardless of their beliefs and religious views.
I see how the question seems immature or not thought out.
Jayk, I hope you don't mind me saying, but your mind seems to be flying all over the place. In this thread that you've started about understanding Armageddon you've then brought up climate change, abortion as a tool of population control and goodness knows what else.
Take a deep breath, there is no urgency. Be happy.
Climate change could be sort of like Armageddon which is being pushed in main stream media. My question is "which is gonna get us first". I didnt say anything to crazy fluoride in the water but Michigan is a clear sign of the government not giving a fuck.. if that happens in the Hamptons people would be pissed.. When the CEO of nestle go on record saying "drinking water should be privatized" yeahh the future is looking a little rough.. buying into climate change means you accept the "carbon taxes" the government trying to impose. Bill nye talks alot about climate change and multiple genders you know he is in the globalist pockets.
The first human head transplant to another body is going on soon. I think the next thing would probably be making hybrids of half human half animal for super soldiers. Right now it seems crazy but it's not. We just lifted the ban on animal human hybrids. Originally you can only do animal and animal hybrids..History is literally about to repeat itself. These are supposed to be signs that the biblical hybrids of Revelation can be possible. Who knows if the animals where metaphors.
You need to make a distinction between world events and their potential outcome VERSUS the end of the world by means of divine intervention. The deadline for the latter has long past (was supposed to have occurred during Jesus' generation).
Divine intervention or technological intervention what ever you wanna call it. Where does divine and tech meet? Or are they the same thing.. your faith is my science. I see the good and bad in both sides. Most medical and technological advances are for military use first..Soooo
