The Middle East and the “End of Times” or the Second Coming of Christ
At first I was going to add this to an earlier blog entry called “Did Someone Blink?” But with one of the Fox News anchors bringing the topic of the “End Times” into the news along with the maybe or maybe not bombing of Syria (and then Iran) — it is time again to talk about the “End Times” mythology.
Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Monday devoted an entire segment to the possibility that a United States attack on Syria could be a sign of the End Times, a period in which Christians believe that Jesus Christ will return to face the emergence of the Antichrist.
“This Syria stuff is way old,” Cavuto explained. “I mean Old Testament old. That’s how old I’m talking about. Don’t laugh. Some biblical scholars say it’s all there in black and white.”
The Fox News host invited author Joel Rosenberg to weigh in on the link between the Syrian conflict and the Bible passages, which he said were “uncanny” and “kind of scary.”
“These are prophecies more than 2,700 years old, some of them, but they have not actually been fulfilled,” Rosenberg said. “But this prophecy, as you just pointed out, talks about the complete and utter destruction of Damascus. That’s an End Times or eschatological prophecy.”
One of the major reasons I refused to even consider voting for Mittens Romney was because of his End of Time brand of religion. Mittens would have been a complete and total puppet of Israel. As I’ve said many time I am not against Israel — as a Nation they have the right to exist — but so do their neighbors — they are all human beings except so many people in the Middle East are taught to hate anyone different, anyone with a different religions or skin color. Some of the strongest advocates for Peace are Israelis — as individuals we humans have a lot in common. The problem in some cases may be a country’s leadership — elected and hereditary — the leaders have different goals then the common folk who work hard and pay taxes to give the leadership a lavish life style.
Ironic that Cavuto mentions the Old Testament of the Bible as an authority on anything — this is the same Old Testament that advocates rape and murder — the total annihilation of cities and populations. However it is the book of Revelations in the New Testament that has much more to say about the End of the World. Daniel and Revelation are the bookends of the End Time predictions.
One very important thing that the End of Timers forget is that when the Old Testament was written — the authors knew very little about the rest of the world. These primitive, backward people had a very limited knowledge of the world and when the Catholic Church dominated Europe — cultural and scientific evolution of humans was brought largely to a stand still.

The damned Crusades are happening again — or the old reasons for the crusades have a few religious fanatics (End of Timers) who want to see blood running in the streets for their own selfish reasons. Folks are waiting for the rapture — for the second coming of Christ. The damned mythology of a backward primitive women hating cult is again trying to turn the world into a Crusade to save the “Holy Land”.
On top of the End of Time News we have the latest Scoop from the Snowdon files — It seems that NSA has turned over to Israel’s spies –who knows how much raw data on American Citizens. So not only does Israel and the Saudi Governments want to use the US military as their personal attack force the Israel Spies are using data stolen from Americans for who knows what reasons.
Somehow these two topics are related — the End of Timers who want the next major war to be the continuation of the destruction of the Middle East — because WHAT —- this time Christ has to walk on rivers of blood??? My former understanding of Jesus Christ was that he was a man of peace and compassion. There is just a slight bit of cognitive dissonance going on — does anyone else see the contradictions? It seems like the money grubbing priests that Jesus drove from the temples have been reincarnated and have taken over the Western world. How does NSA handing over RAW data on American’s fit into the whole mess? Perhaps the Israelis have played the victim card one too many times — and perhaps it is time for the USG to treat Israel like a grown up country and let them sort out their own messes and clean up their own messes??
