At the risk of once again starting another trip around symbolic Horeb after forty years of looking for and finding the door to understanding the interactions of my little microcosm versus the world's macrocosm, you surely recognize that we have 'discussed' (dare we say debated) the timing of things we are now seeing and some are having a hard time recognizing they are exact fulfillments of the Scriptures of the days that Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Zephaniah, Haggai, Habbakuk, et al, were required to write about and John, the beloved of Yeshua further expounded upon; right?

You initially indicate that there is little discrepancy in what I have come to faith about in the first openers, only to insert the 'but' when the argument take a turn to the parts most Christians have so hard a time with; the precise execution of judgment as the Scriptures call for: the Day of the LORD.
For the obedient disciple of Yeshua, it really makes no difference who is revealed for those last days: it is made evidently and plainly clear that the CHURCH WILL BE WITH HER SAVIOR. Doubters lost in their inability to reconcile a saving knowledge in their hearts by the power of the Holy Spirit with Yeshua's love should be worried if, in fact, they have not made that acknowledgment. If they cannot say they will recognize HaMashiach when He returns, what will be His response to them?

Let us again cite France's internal struggles and the apparent inability to recognize that they are at the front doorstep of the calamity that is the EU's to experience as they contemplate international suicide by interfering with the plans of the LORD to finally and fully reconcile Himself with the 'apple of His eye?' (Matthew 7:23) Therein lays the machination of impending doom.

Of empires, Babylon remains the recurrent blueprint for the empires of the past and the Belshazzar's wall of inscription for the judgment that remains to be executed upon those who have not realized empires of men have always been tools of judgment for those who did not recognize the power of the Eternal Sovereign always rules in the affairs of men who seek delusions of empire instead of truth.
The recent Republican Convention invoked phrases of Isaiah 59 in order to apparently give a sense of recovery of a former time of America's one time 'greatness'; yet the import of those verses show a different meaning; that as Israel was under chastisement at the time those verses were invoked against a stubborn people, so too here.

America is still not getting the message and the same inscription that ended the 'Babylonian' empire of that time is about to be invoked here again for the 'spiritual' chastisement of (dare we say, mystery) Babylon of this present time.

The fate of empires was/is to experience the doom of the foibles and failures of their own weaknesses; for all are impersonators of the Kingdom to come. Impending doom? Look around; is it not Scripturally so?
