Comment by Adamantine:
I suppose I am wondering if we still might have an economic crisis someday that would allow possible prophetic events to accelerate.
In the meantime the US is borrowing money to finance foreign wars in the middle east. This is what has bankrupted a slew of past empires! What is so ridiculous is that it is ostensibly to make the area safe for democracy. The people in these countries do not desire democracy. They desire an Islamic Caliphate where those other than Islamic are held in second class citizenship. The seven year ENPI is now about 64.37 % elapsed. Without a stopping of sacrifice during the remaining 911 days which would satisfy the precept that there is a stopping of the sacrifice during this seven year treaty the theory fails in my estimation.
There has never before in history existed such a time as these years when and where it has been possible for a sacrifice to be attempted.
The Jews are back in Israel and they possess both Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. There now exists several organizations which have the starting of sacrifice on the Temple Mount as a stated goal. They have the prepared means. The articles are ready. An altar has been prepared. A red heifer has been found. Calls for Passover sacrifice have gone out on multiple years.
In the meantime sections of the theory as suggested by Herb Peters have faded. The prime suspect for the prime actor in the end time plan has retired officially. He keeps himself ready to be called back as needed however and he is the least retired of all men on the face of the earth. The WEU ten nation military grouping which was equally important has dissolved. However before it dissolved it transferred its powers to the EU. The EU in the meantime has been identified by many secular writers to be the heir apparent to the old Roman Empire.
So much appears ready. So much appears Shadow.
