Hi, Tovey

This is in response to your past three posts. They're so loaded with esoteric language, I doubt that anyone other than I can make heads nor tails of them (though you may disagree that even I can).

First of all, I don't plan to get raptured. I go to bed with the Grim Reaper every night, and he doesn't tell me whether or not he's been appointed to harvest me before I wake up. When I go to be with Jesus, I expect to leave behind a recyclable body.

World War III. Of course, it will happen, and probably soon. Kim Jong Un is so crazy, he WANTS it to happen, and would give his eye teeth to be able to start it. He also has plenty of like-minded friends in Iran and other places. Zech. 14 tells us when it will happen, namely, when Jerusalem is attacked and pillaged during the last battle of this age. The attack on Jerusalem appears earthly and physical, apparently ordered by the United Nations. The nuclear war that follows also appears earthly and physical. When it happens, I would like to be alive; because people will need the gospel more than ever. That's up to God, though: With the condition my heart is in right now, I'm not very sure I'll last that long.

I expect nuclear weapons of all sorts to be used; but it is probable that EMP devices will be employed initially, to cripple targeted countries. That will cause incredible hardships; and people will need the love and word of God more than ever before. We will also need many miracles. Messiah coming, along with the resurrected righteous ones, may bring those miracles; but we may have to wait for them:

Daniel 12:
[11] And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
[12] Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

That's a 45-day wait. That's in addition to the apparent 10-day wait between the end of the beast's reign and the unnamed "event" of verse 11. What happens during those 55 days, while people are being blessed for waiting, ought to be days of important work for God's people: a time for compassion, for healing, for preaching the good news of hope. If possible, I would like to be alive then. Then I'll be ready for a new body.

You said,

"...if the establishment wants Trump to fail, it is their own destruction that is foretold, not his."

The writing is on the wall, for the current liberal, globalist establishment that is cherished by George Soros and the like. Brexit, followed by Trump's election, really devastated many people, the vast majority of whom had become smugly confident that they could not fail.

Geert Wilders just lost in the Netherlands first round election; but the old order cannot stand. Some enormous factors speak against it: 1. Britain will not be in the EU, and will be acting as a free agent, 2. US President Trump is scrapping multilateral trade deals, replacing them with bilateral ones, 3. The world's visa and border control regime is being thoroughly shaken, 4. Alliances such as NATO are in for a serious re-working, along with the largest alliance, the UN.

The world is approaching a place where France was in 1789, and where Germany was in 1919. France went on to have its "finest" hour with Napoleon, as Germany did with Hitler; but both came crashing down in the end, and were replaced by completely new international arrangements (the Congress of Vienna in 1815, and the UN in 1945). The "international arrangement" you and I seek, of course, is the Messianic Order.

God bless and keep you and yours.
