Why the Rapture is Stupid

At the time John of Patmos penned his "Revelations" the known world was ruled by Rome. Nero had spies everywhere. Like the Nazis with their Enigma Code, the early Christians utilized a system of letter-number transposition known as esopsephia. (Those practitioners of Cabala (Qabalah) employ a similar system in Hebrew known as gematria whereby Hebrew letters were assigned numbers, supposedly to reveal divine messages in the O.T.)

It is no coincidence, then, that To Mega Therion in Greek equals not only "The Great Beast" but also "Nero Caesar." The number, 666, in isopsephia is the same for both phrases. In order to warn his Christian brethren of the greatest enemy facing them, John sent coded epistles to far-flung corners of the known world -- coded because, obviously, if a Roman centurion managed to confiscate the parchment (or whatever they wrote on), no suspicion would be raised that the gibberish found in the document said anything about the emperor. Discretion was the better part of valor.

Now, here come these apocalypse freaks, claiming that signs and portents spell doom and gloom, and their silly, gullible followers, clutching their Bibles, run about with "The sky is falling" on their lips, Chicken Littles all. How ridiculous they look, trying to pinpoint the exact date of something that happened, if at all, a couple of thousand years ago.

The real danger, exemplified by the likes of John Hagee and his American-Israeli organization, is that the Rapture Nuts view the Palestinian problem as "God's" plan for bringing about the End Times. In other words, a foregone conclusion. They do not want peace in the Mideast. The exacerbation of existing tensions is part of their agenda to bring about total annihilation of the peoples of the earth. This is why they are all dangerous lunatics who should be shunned as pestilence. Viewing the Book of Revelations as prediction of future events would be comical if it were not so deadly serious.
