The Final Beast Kingdom may not be global

27 posts in this topic

I know many of us believe the rule of antichrist and satan after the abomination of desolation will be global (world wide) which obviously includes the USA, Australia, Canada, Japan, China, New Zealand, Greenland.....you get my point.

For a long time I have shaken my head and said to myself, "Spock, I don't think so!" (Yeah, I talk to myself like that.

"All" or "everyone" or "the whole world" doesn't necessarily have to mean that.

Could it mean something else, something less than ALL as we know it?

Does the bible always mean ALL when it says ALL?

Please please read this link. It is not long, but very informative. I'm sure you know where I am going.

We can discuss this and add to it, but first, please read the link.

Okay, now, let me have what you are thinking.

Ok, Spock. I've read the link. It's interesting because some time ago I started a thread on exactly this subject "does the Whole World mean the Whole World?" I can't find it but it must be in the archives somewhere.

Actually, I've found it under a different name from what I remember. It was kind of hijacked anyway, so it's good that you have started another thread on this subject.

Oak wood,

So now we all should know by this one simple little link that ALL doesn't have to mean EVERY SINGLE NATION OR PERSON.

If this is correct, The implications of this are far reaching.

This changes things for me the way I see end times prophecy.

I agree with you (possibly). It's certainly worth considering.  There is also the other possibility (a compromise) that the whole World is affected but mainly as bystanders. Only the Middle East bears the full brunt of the Trib.

a reason not to trust the Bible to mean what it says in modern language...

Even if it is Global, can it really affect every corner of the Earth - even wilderness areas?

Do you think someone actually cares about what the people of Iceland or the aborigines of Papua, New Guinea are doing?

Also, it seems the antichrist is involved in all kinds of battles during his reign (King of the north and king of the south come after him according to Daniel 11:40). This sounds like not everyone is feeling the love for the faker.

Maybe there's hope after all if other nations refuse to fall for his lies.

I realized this, this past year, as like you Spock, this really affected, not only my view on 'end-times', but yes, as OtherOne mentions, the modern translations, thus, my whole belief in the 'inerrant word of God' (based on translation) Darn, I wish  I could read greek and hebrew!

 

However,,,IF the 'whole world' really only means the 'known world' at that particular point in time, then things may actually be much further along than they would appear to us in the West. We are much more at a disadvantage due to our lack of understanding Eastern culture, Jewish traditions/Holy days (who else has said 'Why wasnt  I ever taught that?!!!), the rich History,  and of course we got all that man-made doctrines dabbled in.

Nevertheless,

I fully trust in Him.
