hm if you read these revelations I dont see that the death of everyone is predicted...instead they predict a time of change followed by a golden age. Furthermore I think the revelations say "between the lines" that god is working to prevent the death of everyone, which I guess would occur worldwide if certain "not so nice" people and activities are not stopped.
If one believes the bible it seems clear that surely something is somewhen going to happen
. Just read the book of revelation. There are some hints that we might actually live in these times.
That we are (at least) living in times of change has by now reached the mind of the average person, even in america. For example because they have only change (coins ;-)) left, just like Obama promised
Regarding the theories which say that near death experiences are just "brain effects" caused for example by lack of oxygene or because of chemicals / brain chemistry etc. etc. you should read Raymond A. Moodys classic book "Life after Life" in which he scientifically examines these arguments and disproves them in a very detailed and very convincing matter.
One can find interviews with howard storm without any spectacular mumbojumbo and drama like in "unsolved mysteries" ;-)
Regarding the time when "it" would happen and that nobody knows the time according to the bible I think the bible is talking about the second coming of christ. In the above mentioned revelations at www.thewarningsecondcoming.com
there is no date given for the second coming. There is however given a timefrime for the warning (which is not mentioned in the bible at all, at least as far as I can see). The warning was mentioned in garabandal.
Well I personally have spent a lot of time on topics like this already because I think they are highly important. The question is why are we here on this earth and what is the meaning of life. For me it was always important to gain more clarity regarding all these questions. Others just buy into the "scientific" theory that our lives are meaningless and that we are living in a cold, deadharted world made up by atom dominos and that humans are just chemical-electrical machines without a soul (basically just their brains) and that, when they cease to function, fall back into a meaningless black pit without conscience forever. This makes them easy to manipulate of course and, I guess
, thats exactly the reason why this is stuffed up the *ss of the average person each and every time they turn on their intelligence machines ups I meant tv sets ;-)
I also examined the dogma of ETERNAL hell in great detail (unfortunately I can only link to german sites like www.ewigehoelle.de.vu
which is VERY detailed but in german) because this keeps a lot of people away from god. My research shows that the catholic church mistranslated the word aeon so that they could make money by selling indulgences, which obviously worked pretty well (historically this was the nr. 1 source of wealth of the catholic church). Aeon means a long time and not eternity. It can be translated as eternity but in the appropriate bible context using eternity as the translation for the word is highly unusual. So there is no ETERNAL hell, hell itself however exists with high probability - it is a necessity for justice. Without heaven and hell, no justice is possible (thats also a simple logical thing) - therefore, if there is justice, both heaven and hell must exist. Of course, only very bad people go to what is called hell (murders, for example. Abortion btw is considered murder by god, however that does not mean that everyone who had an abortion has to go there, as god is just and looks into every case in "ridiculous detail"). Furthermore there are a lot of "grades" of heaven and hell (you can even find this in the bible -> "seven heavens" etc.) as there are a lot of different people. It is said that each and every soul accepted gods verdict by now because it is presented to the soul in such a detailed and explanative way that it becomes clear to each soul that his/her verdict is "ultra-just".
Ups - I guess for most people this sounds like a fairy tale
I shouldnt talk so much
