The Jesus Conversation
Apocalyptic, eschatological views (such as Dispensationalist Christian beliefs and Radical Islam) which look for ever-increasing war and destruction are incompatible with God's Kingdom Message of Love's ever-increasing rule and PEACE!
Mixing that error and worldview with politics conflates God's Will with a morbid expectation of ever-increasing evil, death, different brands of "Jihad" and the ultimate destruction of planet Earth...along with an overwhelming majority of its inhabitants. This is very sick and twisted stuff from the Gates (wisdom) of hell (Hades- which literally means "to not see")...which Jesus said would NOT prevail against His Church. It ultimately WON'T!
An ignorance of History (especially of the events surrounding 70 A.D. and the writings of Josephus) has lead so many well-meaning, professing Christians to a worldview that is in direct opposition to God's Will. You can't take specific warnings about the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. (along with specific, corresponding instructions) and apply them literally to the present or the future any more than you should be warning people about the imminent threat that dead Roman Emperors are to the world today!
Much of what we see in the world today isn't fulfilled, Biblical prophecy, it's just the self-fulfilled "prophecy" of religious mindsets which are in great need of being renewed through His Spirit, His Word, and a good History lesson!
Strongholds in the collective mind of the Church are greatly responsible for much of our bad history...which has repeated itself over and over.
Nevertheless, the prophet's words still ring true!
Isaiah 9:7 "There will be no end to the increase of His government or of PEACE, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this."
Ephesians 3:21 "unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."
Matthew 5:5 "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth."
Ecclesiastes 1:4 "One generation goes and another generation comes, But the earth remains forever."
Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, on EARTH as it is in heaven!
