The Apocalypse: Satan’s Victory?

            I have issues with traditional Christianity. One such issue is its Eschatology; things like Armageddon, the Tribulation, and the Rapture.

            Basically, my problem is this: How can you interpret traditional Christianity’s version of the Apocalypse as anything but a victory for Satan? I’m not an expert on the subject—and perhaps, with that admission, I should refrain from commenting at all: but I’m not going to—there seem to be three elements to the Apocalypse. First, there’s the Rapture; okay, maybe in this, God has the upper hand because He rescues all those who are worthy and brings them up to Heaven. Maybe. Or are they fleeing the battlefield because they can’t handle it? Next, there is the Tribulation a period of unprecedented suffering and apostasy for the Church. Clearly, here, at least, it seems like Satan has the upper hand. Even many traditional Christians would admit that. Then there’s Armageddon, the Final Battle. Traditional Christians seem to think that because they are “fated” to win the battle (when Christ slays the antichrist) that they will win the war. But what is the result of all this? It’s the biggest battle of all human history. How many people are killed? Better yet, how many people are damned?

            Let’s assume Armageddon happens tomorrow. According to estimates, there are about seven billion people on this planet. How many are Christians? How about: how many are Christians who will be saved? Let’s be generous and say two billion. Hmmm … Satan claims five billion? And that’s a victory for God? Okay, maybe God will claim people from other religions, too …… Let’s say, the good guys claim five billion and Satan claims two billion. That seems counter to what most traditional Christians expect, but we’ll go with it. Let’s examine that, for a moment.

            Satan, an imperfect angel, who was driven out of Heaven, not by God Himself, but by His underlings the angels, also imperfect, is going up against an omnipotent, omniscient Being and he’s going to successfully claim nearly thirty percent of the spoils? I guess you can argue based on free will, but still; if you go up against an omnipotent, omniscient Being and you come away with anything—to me, that seems like a victory.

            Combine that with all the bloodshed and horror that precedes this battle and I am feeling less and less inclined to call such a development a victory for God. To me it seems more like a victory for Satan. But, I suppose, there’s also free will, and it’s hard to figure out how to work that into the calculation. Oh, well.

Who’s In Hell?

A word of warning: please do not read this if you are under eighteen years of age or if you have lost a loved one recently and are still grieving.

First things first: I am the antichrist, but I absolutely do NOT want Satan to win. Satan is the biggest [attach infinite succession of profanities here] imaginable.

Is there a hell? Yes. I’ve been there. However, it was NOT created by God, but by Satan in defiance of God. Satan is playing both parts: he’s been impersonating deities since the dawn of time prophesying of a great conflict between Good and Evil at the end of the world; but, like I said, he’s the one playing both parts. The real God has been largely silent waiting patiently for us to figure him out.

Anyway, who’s in hell? Not who you think. As a result of my antichrist experience, I’ve come to realize that the universe is Satan’s creation and it is a domain where justice is reversed according to the Devil’s whim. In Satan’s cosmos, all the Hitlers go the heaven, and all the Gandhis go to hell. I’ve seen a number of Youtube videos about hell on-line. If you research the topic, you’ll find various dire warnings and horrifying claims like: Martin Luther is in hell (so a Catholic visionary reports), Pope John Paul II is in hell (so a Protestant visionary reports), or even 99% of all Christians are going to hell (some other devout Christian visionary reports). How do you make sense of all this? Well, I think all three are correct. Satan has been tossing good people into hell for untold thousands of years. By my reckoning, I’d say both Martin Luther and Pope John Paul II were good men. Neither one deserves eternal damnation. But Satan condemned both to hell in an effort to turn the men against God. Basically, I’m convinced that most good people who die (if they actually die) wind up in hell. This leaves but one course of action open to us, the living:

Invade hell.

We must rescue every condemned soul from Satan’s clutches. I’m not quite sure how to do that. I’ve started by flushing mouthwash and soap down the toilet, under the assumption that my toilet acts like a portal to hell, in order to wash Satan’s mouth out (with soap) or at least alleviate some of the stench that I’m sure the damned suffer with (using mouthwash). What we really need to do is find an actual physical opening to hell, and get ready with battalions of fire trucks, ambulances, food trucks, and who knows what else (I’m open to suggestions).

Oh, and despite the fact that I wrote that last paragraph in a kind of whimsical, almost silly, tone, I am totally serious. (I wrote this about a month ago. My antichrist stuff resembles bipolar disorder where there are highs and lows. This was written during a high. Currently, I’m not flushing odd things down the toilet… at least not frequently.)

I, Hypocrite

Hi. I posted this some time ago. I figured I would repost it because I think it is a worthwhile read.

====

I am a hypocrite. Yes, little old me, waxing philosophical is a stupendously foolish hypocrite. But is that bad?

I think most people would regard that as bad, but I’m not sure I agree—at least, not always. Let me explain.

Hypocrisy is usually defined as saying that someone (usually someone else) should do one thing while you go about and do the exact opposite.

One of the most common forms of hypocrisy (and perhaps the most infuriating) is moral hypocrisy where an individual claims to embrace a moral code they do not practice. But what if they try to practice that moral code and simply fail? For example, what of the Christian moral code? The most striking thing about the Christian code is how high and demanding it is. In fact, it may be so high and demanding that no one can live up to it. Hence, the accusation of hypocrisy can be leveled at all Christians. But if Jesus was divine as He claimed to be, then the source of the code He left behind for His followers is also divine. And if it is divine, it may very well be the case that no one can live up to the code. Does that make the code useless? No. It can still serve as a goal to strive for, but one accompanied by the understanding that it can never be fully reached. As men and women strive toward the code, they will necessarily improve, morally speaking, but they will never reach perfection. They will be hypocrites, all of them, but non-threatening ones. So, I would classify that as a kind of justified hypocrisy.

There is another form of hypocrisy that is inherently justifiable: that of hypocrisy by experience. Basically, in life we learn things—call them life lessons, if you will. Such life lessons may serve to change our behavior as we grow older, because we learn, morally speaking, that our previous behavior was bad by some measure. For example, suppose a woman at a young age gets pregnant and has an abortion. She comes to regret that decision and counsels others to not have abortions. Is she a hypocrite? In some sense, yes, but if you acknowledge that experience can change a person and teach them valuable lessons, you will realize that sometimes hypocrisy may simply indicate that a person has learned something of value and wishes to pass that knowledge on to someone else. And passing knowledge on to the young is not only a great service to those who make up the young, it is also a duty of those who are older.

Anyway, by both these measures, I acknowledge that I am a hypocrite. I’m not going to share the full list of all my particular failings with the world because that would make me feel uncomfortable; still, I feel inclined to acknowledge the simple fact of my hypocrisy. I leave others to their own self-reflection.

Yes, I tried to defend hypocrisy. Did I succeed? I’ll let you decide.

Donald Trump is Satan

Okay. I am convinced I am the antichrist. I have also recently come to the conclusion that Donald Trump might be Satan. I also believe that Barack Obama was Satan, too. As Satan is a shape-shifter, that doesn’t pose a logical problem for me. Satan served as U.S. President in the form of Barack Obama, then, when his terms were over, he started serving again as Donald Trump, billionaire businessman. It’s the ego that gives both of them away. I ought to know; I have a ginormous ego myself—not as big as Satan’s—but still, regrettably, very large.

Why would he pick one party and then the other? He is trying to pit us against each other by polarizing our nation. Like Obama, Trump is unimpeachable. Obama could not be impeached because he was the first black president. Trump cannot be impeached because that would tear our country apart. I really don’t know what to do about him, but I’m pretty sure he’s Satan. Or, at the very least, is possessed by Satan.

A ways back I made a post in support of Trump because I thought his business acumen would help us deal with our debt problem. I now think he is an embodiment of pure evil and would like him impeached, but not at the cost of my country. The only advice I can give is to keep standing up and speaking your mind to the best of your ability. You can’t change the mind of your entire opposition, but you can change one person’s mind and you can be flexible enough to change yourself.

Love and Prayers to Everyone. Satan (lies & truth, yin and yang, nature, the evil universe) is a Liar and Jesus Christ is the Lord.

The Mandela Effect and the Return of the Dead

Okay, a lot of people seem to be aware of the Mandela Effect on line. It first started happening to me in 1997ish, possibly 1998ish shortly after my antichrist experience. I still insist it is the handiwork of Satan/Mara/Shiva/Etc… (the sentient, evil universe). I think you can get a better handle on it if you remember all those times you said A to a friend who heard you say B. Both of you insisted the other was wrong, but you were, in fact, both right. It’s basically the same thing. Both you and your friend are trying to reach each other, but Satan is getting in the way.

A lot of people think it is shifting dimensions, but it isn’t really. You are you, and there is only one of you. What I think is happening is that “we” aren’t skipping through dimensions collectively at all. “We” were never in the same “dimension” to begin with. It’s kind of like an extreme form of perceptual relativism, but it is because Satan is responsible for manipulating our perceptions.

Anyway, my more important point concerns death. I believe people have “died,” but instead of going to heaven or hell (although some did go to both of these), they split off and entered another “dimension” (although dimension isn’t quite the correct word). Satan produced a body for us to grieve over and inflict pain upon us.

I don’t mean to get anyone’s hopes up, but I’m thinking that for some of us, loved ones whom we have believed to be dead may return via the Mandela Effect. They are still alive living in a reality where they saw us die and be buried. And since Jesus’s Second Coming is happening, He’s undoing the dimensional splits so that we will, ultimately, all wind up in the same dimension.

Anyway, that was one of my thoughts. I hope it doesn’t get your hopes up too high, if you have lost someone. I don’t mean to be cruel.

Love and prayers to Everyone. Satan (lies & truth, yin and yang, and nature) is a Liar, and Jesus Christ is the Lord.

The Immigration Issue, The Media, and Satan

Yes, I’m talking about Satan again. No, I am not making light of the immigration issue. Hear me out.

The immigration issue is dividing this country to the core. I watch Fox News—which, I admit, tilts right. I do not watch the other stations which tilt left—I should, but I lack the time. We would do well to remember that this is the United States of America and we are not monsters. The left has valid points to make, and the right has valid points to make. We should try to calm down and listen to each other before we tear this country apart.

The left is accusing the Trump administration of acting like Nazi Germany. The right is accusing the left of playing politics with the lives of children. Satan is pitting both of you against each other. No, I’m not kidding. Satan (lies and truth, yin and yang) can manipulate reality with ease (look up the Mandela Effect on the Internet—that’s him). I’m telling you, because of Satan, if the left goes to visit the children separated from their families (which no one likes), they will find the conditions terrible and atrocious—and they will report that through their media outlets. And I mean, they will see a rough equivalent of Nazi Germany and will say as much. If the right goes to look at the children separated from their families (which no one likes), they will find the conditions tolerable and staffed by people doing their best to deal with a difficult situation—and they will report that. Given what I know of the American populace, I’m inclined to think the right’s perceptions are more accurate here for a larger percentage of people, but there will always be bad apples in any group like those staffing the situation and Satan will manipulate matters, so that the left will have a “knack” for finding those children who are treated the poorest, thus reinforcing their preconceived notions. Further, media outlets give Satan a chance to manipulate populations even further. It is child’s play for him to screw with electrons in computers, project images that don’t match reality, etc… Just look up the Mandela Effect on the Internet. That’s him.

I am not being sarcastic. I am not insane. But I do know it sounds crazy.

Satan is a Liar and Jesus Christ is the Lord.

But in all likelihood, no one will believe me.
