2 Corinthians 5: 6-11 states:
Plotinus goes on to ask, “If she becomes a part of the universal Soul, what kind of evil could affect her there? — and then: “...In general . . . there is no evil for the soul who has maintained her purity; and if she has maintained it, then it is not death that is an evil for her, but rather life. Even if there are punishments in Hades, then once again, it is life that is an evil for her, for it is not life and nothing but.” — and to answer his question, no evil of any degree can affect anyone whom has become saved and has become “one with Christ,” because all of evil flees and trembles in the name of God, which brings me to something else in which is interconnected with what I have written thus far:
A frequently-typical quote one may hear from a non-believer in God is “What kind of God creates man and then damns them?” In Ezekiel 33:2, this particular scriptures meets this common complaint by enlightening us and showing us that God has absolutely no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but desires their welfare and that the wicked bring damnation upon themselves by their stubborn refusal to repent. 1 Timothy 2: 3-4 shows that God, 'so far from creating man to damn him, desires that all men be saved.' 2 Peter 3:9 teaches that 'God is not willing that any should perish and is delaying His purposes in order that all may come to repentance.' John 5:40 and Matthew 23:37 shows that the entire cause of man’s damnation is his own willful and persistent refusal to come to Christ. And, of course, then there are those that complain about the bible, labeling it as contradictory and absurd, or perhaps, “The Bible just seems foolish to me.” However, in 1 Corinthians 1: 18-31, the Word of God says:
And then in 2 Corinthians 4: 3-4, it states:
With that said, I am waiting for the Rapture to take place, because when it does eventually occur (and it is on the way!), everything else that was predicted will unfold according to what the Bible has stated would happen. I believe that the first rider of the white horse of the Anti-Christ is already walking the earth, but hasn’t risen to power just yet. The UN, NAU and European Union will all play a major role in fulfilling prophecy. After the leader of this new global government signs a 7-year peace treaty with Israel, the Tribulation Period will begin and prophecy will be fulfilled. I truly believe that we are in the last days, because everything that the Bible stated would occur has already been fulfilled (I can’t stress this enough!), and there is much more to come. The falsitivities of man’s desire to learn about what “science” says about everything is also a part of the deceptions that many people would fall under. What people have to come to understand is that science was originally based off of Biblical terms. It is when people not of faith began “experimenting” with things that went amiss. John 8:31-42 says: “If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” I truly grieve for those whom speak against or “mock” Christianity. However, it is perfectly-evident and proves another prophecy in the Bible in which clearly says that God’s people would go through much humiliation and persecution.
Something else that I want to quote in regards to Bible prophecy, and it is what the wonderful Joel Rosenberg recently stated last month:
And this insane maniac, Ahmadinejad, states that by creating an enormous war and killing as many Jews and Christians as possible (and whomever doesn't practice their religion) that that will suddenly spark the return of their "messiah" to come down and "finish the job" and then take the remaining individuals to the "after life." They believe that there has to be a vast array of blood-shed before their 'messiah' returns. So, if there are certain people out there that don't believe that these "genocidal maniacs" won't attempt to try and murder and destroy millions of people, then they have another thing coming. For those that are ready, however, do not have anything to worry about, because God has this all in the palms of his hands (he soothes all worries). The signs are all there. As one source states, "The Global Age is right upon us. It is on the horizon of our lifetime." Also:
"It is well the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford
"Their aim is nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. The system was to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences." (Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope (New York: The Macmillan Co., 1966)
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark of his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. [Revelation 13:16-17]
Scripture tells us of the establishment of a New World Order by the Antichrist in the last days. Indeed, the devil must have a dictatorial form of government if he is to rule the world. It is being slowly implemented in our governments through legislation and in our churches with a new spirituality until ultimately it will be in the hands of an elite of intelligent politically-connected religious-minded people in league with the Antichrist.
