I prefer not to go where I am not led, but sometimes one seems to fall into certain subjects. I recently commented on a post re Revelation but went outside my comfort zone in some respects.
Revelation to me is a bit like Romans 6,7 and 8, in that it does not appear to be in sequential order, and Revelation does not appear to be chronologically ordered. I found Revelation to be a series of events which are repeated in seeming parallel versions of the same story, if this makes any sense.
Out of Revelation I gained insight into “The one who takes part in the first resurrection will not be harmed by the second death” issue, and out of this came my understanding that the matter of end times would be according to the “Amillennial” view as opposed to other popular ideas.
Along with this it appeared obvious that the “falling of satan from heaven” etc. was actually the occasion of the cross, whereby all accusation was stopped by the sacrifice of Christ. Also there was the episode of the disciples returning and Jesus saying about “I saw satan fall like lighting…”
So I do not agree with the 1000 year reign, or with much of the popular interpretation of Revelation, or of pre-millennial versus other ideas or rapture timings. I do see that to hold some of these popular views is leaving oneself open to deception if the “antichrist” were to pop up and say “I’m back”.. When Christ returns it will be all finished and no second chances.
Interestingly I just had a conversation with a friend who detailed two UFO sightings which he described as quite startling occurrences. So if some silver craft lands in Jerusalem and a white clothed being emerges, many of the “Christian” world would flock to whatever agenda was put forward, and true believers would fall victim to the followers of this supposed Christ.
