Quote# 92207

[I've always felt that it would be significant when we would see a shift to the E.U. instigating a peace plan rather than the U.S. so this may be a big turning point.]

Honestly, although I knew the AntiChrist would come from Europe, I never postulated this shift of focus over to the EU - so it took me by surprise.

Ponder this: The EU is clear about not dilly-dallying like years past. They're determined to set something on the table that the international community can sign onto, and get it done by the end of the year. They're not interested in failed peace talks after failed peace talks lasting years - they want it done. Whatever reason they want it done so quickly? I don't know. But now that attention is focusing on the EU, I can't picture a constant back-and-forth and up-and-down like we've had for years between America/Israel/PA. The new kid is in town.

Praise the LORD. Yet more reminders of how REAL this all really is. Maranatha!

You're going to feel really silly when the world doesn't end when you say it will--yet again.

Too bad you're not hoping for peace for the sake of the people who live there instead of hoping for a fairly tale that would bring suffering and death to billions of unbelievers in tribulations.

I love that word Maranatha!

It's almost pornographic...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is he saying the Antichrist is obviously going to come from Europe because the E.U. is INSTIGATING A FUCKING PEACE PLAN?!?!?!

A couple of weeks ago, the antichrist came from Kenya via Honolulu, now he comes from Europe? He certainly gets around, but I suppose he would have to if he was going to inflict the twin evils of peace and stability upon mankind.

Peace plan? What peace plan?

1/21/2013 5:44:28 AM



Funny, I'd heard that the EU was on the verge of collapse, with the exception of Germany and the UK.

Also, what is Maranatha? It sounds Indian.

Star Trek is more real than this.

We know the Anti-Christ is coming from Europe because it was prophesied in Tim Lahaye's "Left Behind" books.

Oh boy! Yet another sign that the rapture is imminent and the final apocalyptic battle between good and evil is just about to happen right before the total destruction of the entire world! Let's see if it happens this time...

1/21/2013 6:14:00 AM



Bold decisive action. This guy has the EU pegged.

By the way, shouldn't the Rapturists wear spacesuits at all times, so that they don't explode when god pulls them out of the atmosphere?

YES! Yes, it's real, it's happening!!

We're finally going to see the back of you lunatics.

I dunno about this one... I think it needed more stupid shouting and fist-pumping smilies, particularly at the end.

"I knew the AntiChrist would come from Europe"
Uh! Uh! Uh! Can we have a casting show?

"Whatever reason they want it done so quickly? I don't know."
Oh well, let me help you there:
1. We're not that into war.
2. We feel a duty to both post-colonial Arabs and Israel to fix what we collectively fucked up.
3. The conflict creates instability throughout the entire region and that's bad for business.

If you wonder why the EU, well that's because America has become distruted and hated. So somebody had to step up.

I always thought the Antichrist would come from either Comcast Cable or Verizon.

Only a fundie could see peace as a sign of the end of the world.

As real as the monsters under the bed, the gobblins in the sewers, the elves in the forest, and the fairies in the garden.

We didn't fix that when we got rid of Bush and his neocons?

"Maranatha" comes from the Aramaic phrase "mar-an atha," which means "Our Lord has come."

The EU is to ensure WWII would never happen again. Post-war Germany learned that a Democratic government has made it infinitely more stronger (certainly industrially/financially) than a Fascist dictatorship. France is militarily stronger (the only nukes that aren't under direct NATO - i.e. US - control), thus they have a greater say-so in world policy terms (the G8). Coupled with former Soviet Bloc countries that were only too eager to join the EU, thus their armed forces are now allied to NATO (and therefore weakening Russia's position, further rendering the US as now the only superpower).

So how can the EU gaining greater power be a bad thing?! I mean, it's not as if the US is still completely Israel's ally, is it?

And China's prominence is now fucking up your 'Gog-Magog' bollocks too.

So why isn't any of these political paradigm shifts mentioned in your prophetic Bible verbatim, then?

Well, I hope he clears up the mess! [/mucky mind] X3

Well, the U.S. never signed a peace treaty with North Korea, so maybe it's not the best pick to instruct other countries on how to conduct peace negotiations.

The EU are having a go because Americas track record on peace plans is somewhat less than stellar

Whatever reason they want it done so quickly? I don't know.

Fed up of seeing innocent civilians on both sides being killed? Because the US has stalled on the issue, perhaps? Because EU governments want to be seen to achieve something? Because the West, which includes what is now the EU, was instrumental in creating the whole sorry mess in the first place?

What ever the reason, what would be the point of putting a peace plan on the table only to say, "how long can we stretch this out?". Surely, the quicker a peace plan is implemented the better it is for everyone, or am I missing something here?
