What is Inevitable is Hard to Understand in the Human Frame of Reference

Reader comment on item: Reservations about the Trump Peace Plan
in response to reader comment: "The Ultimate Conclusion"

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Feb 6, 2020 at 19:00

The term 'apocalypse' is one that has never been appreciated in its original context; thus it is used interchangeably in both religious and non-religious observations. All that it means from the Greek is 'revealing'; to that end, it is used from a Scriptural perspective. That it has a broader application in the descriptions of the 'end times' catastrophe of the human condition is partly due to that misunderstanding of what the future is supposed to bring dependent upon one's preferred perspective.
From a non-religious perspective, watching the political 'antics' of a Middle East driven by religious perspective (Islam vs Christianity) is a very hard paradigm to watch, since both of these religious perspectives have diametrically opposed impositions of the belief systems they espouse: Islam requires submission to a Deity with limited freedom of choice whereas Christianity allows free choice of whom one desires to worship; to be sure, if one does not become obedient to choose Christ for eternal live, there are consequences. This is what is revealed in the 'apocalypse'- the Revelation.
Now, how does this even have any bearing on what the 'Peace to Prosperity' plan proffered by President Trump? If understood correctly, it is a litmus test of understanding that the component actors of both side of the 'Palestinian' issue are on a 'road map' to the ultimate conclusion you and other have alluded to: the preparations to taking this to the inevitable conclusion are already in place regionally, both eventually globally.
Again, this is what is revealed in the 'apocalypse'- the Revelation; but not only there; much of the prophetical implications placing Israel in the middle of the modern political storms that lead to the same place are becoming evident towards that conclusion as well.
