So Michael S;

Esoteric language has been used to described my thought processes for decades: whether it is a blessing or liability has yet to be determined and commentaries about it like yours does not alleviate the argument either; so the status quo remains. Thus, I do not disagree with your assertion.
That being said, you and I have had some exchanges that do not diffuse some of the underlying context about these times we are in; that if we both said we knew the full answer of what we are seeking about truth, I think I can safely say that we are about to be just as astounded as any when we get to see what the Most High Eternal Sovereign has in store, my only regret being that I had hoped to be more prepared by being more true to His WORD and having more time sharing His love to those who would receive it.
We know that the transformative change of the world which is waiting for the WORD of the LORD in order to commence beyond Ezekiel 38 and move into the pronouncements of Zechariah 12 through 14 (Zephaniah 2 to 3, Psalms 78 through 84, et al) is eternally moments away, yet we in our mortal trappings must endure the waiting of Psalm 27.
But my expectation is that Daniel 12:11-12 is to be observable from Heaven for those who trusted Jesus during the age of grace. Salvation by the blood of Jesus (the next pesach should be telling if this is actually a Jubilee year) gave us this assurance if we truly believe Him at His WORD. The preaching during the tribulation and later great tribulation will result in new believers, but as it were, by trials like those endured during the Church's first century.
And finally, in the descriptions of how the world is desperately trying to find that perfect series of national alignments in order to prevent the nuclear exchanges flaring on the horizon, one must realize there is that one scripture which gives context to the meaning of mutually assured destruction, that all of mankind would be consumed were it not for the intervention of His grace towards the remnants of humanity. This is in the context of the apocalypse prior to the millennium.
It is the context of the coming of the international community to the throne of God in the Name of Jesus Christ in order to serve Him in Israel. His arrival for the second advent is settled in that moment. How is that for being esoteric?
