So what if prophecy says? Be careful of what is so easily dismissed but which does have relevance even if it is not believed.

Not all prophecy is revealed knowledge; thus to say some is utter garbage misses its point.

Biblical revelation is not metaphysics as so many will label it, but they who think so are the ones in error. Further, any Islamically minded individual that practices his Islam as a dutiful Muslim does not share the same details of eschatology as that of fundamentalist disciples of Jesus Christ. To continue to think so does not hurt the disciple of Jesus Christ in his faith, but does prevent determining what is and what is not about to happen.

To irreverently dismiss the prior reader's comments as idiotic is yet another labeling technique that evidently seeks to diminish any level of credence to the opinion expressed without basis of fact. Such is typical of the mindset that dismisses any credence given to higher powers that many do not understand. Even Darwin in his 'On the Origin of Species' gives credence to the Divine and the processes of nature being supernaturally governed.

But let us take this a step further. What has been dismissed as idiotic in actuality is like a computer program running in the background and code executing command lines at infrequent and frequent points of time. Point one of the 'Viewpoint' opinion is generally correct. The Arab uprising has its overview in Scripture-we'll leave it at that for this time. Point two is generally not necessarily correct, for it makes a presumption that the United States has a primary function in eschatological influences in the Middle East and studies on this are inconclusive. Point three of Islam being amalgamated into the 'one world order' is slightly off; for the Revelation demonstrates that 'mystery Babylon' succumbs to the 'one world order,' indicating that the more proper view is that of subjugation and elimination.

While secularism may not have all the facts, it is currently the modus operandi by which implementation of a 'one world order' is being accomplished by diminishing any non-conforming religion to the central belief that mankind can achieve peace through some brokered deal of ideologies and who gets to reign in the 'one world order.'

One final point: the central activity of the world's quest for peace relies upon one central fact-Israel is the target of all Middle East issues, one of the more recent statements of saying so being made by Egyptian leader Mursi-that of making Jerusalem the capital of the world-wide caliphate- a pipe dream to be sure, but what is he willing to sacrifice to make that happen? For those who do not understand, read the Hebrew Scriptures. They are NOT idiotic as the Adversary would have you to believe.
