Quote# 89962

Thank you for your post.

Everything that needs to happen before the rapture has presented itself, except for the possibilities of:


The Fall of Damascus.
We are watching the Islamisation of the Middle East as they regroup in their Arab Spring/Winter to surround Israel.
We are watching countries collapse economically and calling for a financial savior to rescue them.
The Euro is tanking and announces a need for a messiah.
The local church is infected with apostasy and is baring her open wound for a one world religion solution under the guise of sensual love and acceptance of all God and scripture forbids.



The world is actually waiting for us to leave because nothing else can happen and they can do nothing else before we are gone.

Here are some things we won't see before we are taken out of here:


The world system financially collapses and unites under one economic banner.
A new world leader rises up to rescue the world from war and socio-economic collapse.
A new church leader rises up to unify all churches together under one banner of love and tolerance.
Israel builds and worships in their new temple in Jerusalem.
Israel is surrounded by nations for obliteration.


Which leads us back to our original question: "How long will our LORD tarry?"

To clarify to the idea he'd return in the displines lifetime was the resurrection and all.

He mentioned that he would also return at the end of time. Most non-Sola Scriptora beliefs belive that Revelation is inherently a book of allegory. Essentially telling Christians to stay strong through Roman Persecution. Things like referring to Nero Ceaser in the numerical form of his name in Greek.

Rapture will be basically, end of time. Everything after his resurrection is spreading the Kingdom of God on Earth.

Not that I believe it, but that's the post-milleniums view.

These people make this rapture thingy sound like a divine forclosure.

What is God in their eyes? A fucking accountant?

Too easy.

This narrative of a leader coming to unite everyone, and him being espousing love and tolerance, is a powerful disincentive for any kind of unity, tolerance or understanding on the part of Christian fundamentalists for anyone else. It means that when they hear these ideals honestly expressed, they suspect them and think, based on no evidence, that they must come from the Devil. One can imagine the consequences for their politics.
Also, it's very authoritarian to think in terms of "leaders" and not in terms of movements and systems. The world has already largely united under one economic banner, with a few isolated exceptions. This has been happening for the last twenty years. The name of this new world order is neo-liberal capitalism. It's at once a lot more complicated and a lot less mysterious than the Rapture-ites make out.
As for the other prophecies, the self-fulfilling nature of them is obvious, as is the misanthropic, nihilistic need to see the world destroyed and see people suffer, so they can feel vindicated and superior to all those who mocked them for holding absurd beliefs. It's the usual right wing politics and misanthropy with a veneer of paranoia and irrationality, with some sort of vague relation to Christianity.

@farpadokly, what strikes me is how the Raptards believe everyone else is completely helpless, sitting around passively waiting for a strong leader to rescue them. Apparently since Raptards need a messiah, everyone else does, too. People working together to help themselves seems to be anathema to these fundies.

Uniting all churches? Pff. Never gonna happen.

Yeah. "The Euro is tanking and announces a need for a Messiah"? What are they going to do, put an ad in the help wanted section for "Messiah"?

The same way as in the Dark 30s.

You do realize, I hope, that everyone of your departed fellow believers who expected Jesus' return in their lifetime has been incontrovertibly proven wrong. For roughly the last hundred generations.

I expect this remarkably consistent trend to continue for the foreseeable future.

"How long will our LORD tarry?"

It has been approximately 1979 years if you count from the time of his supposed resurrection.

He ain't coming back.
