It doesn't matter. One day, not too long from now, you will die. It won't be a normal death as with all those who have died before Christ. This death will be different.
Your physical body will cease breathing along with the other normal functions that keep you alive. It will no longer be useful for anything. After several days it will start to decompose becoming corrupted with decay.
But you won't be in that body. God will give you a new body. A spiritual body. Of body not capable of being corrupted with decomposition. A body that will last forever. A body capable of existing in heaven where flesh and blood cannot enter.
God bless. Put your faith where it properly belongs -- in Jesus Christ.
My mission is not to die before saving all mankind, what happens after that is not something we factually know anything about. My faith is in the man you refer to as Jesus because I am that man. I am the beginning and the end of all problems, great and small. Are you ready to listen yet?

You're worse than the jws with your "the end is closer than close" talk. If you are jesus, do something already.

The hard part is finding a beleiver after that its a piece of cake. I have done many things in preparation for the end of your world and the beginning of the New World. I war with the US judicial system as often as possible and testify that I am the Christ and I also war with all of you both here and at Armageddononline.org in the forums. I am also the most sucessful manufacturing manager in all of time and a tremendous competitor at all things and all sports. I wasn't sitting on my hands like all of you were.

You are a very troubled and confused soul.

Don't worry. It will all be over soon. Then you will understand. You won't have a choice. You WILL know the truth, like it or not.

I watched a TV program about the Superstorm Sandy...the forecasters said it is the worst disaster to hit North America ever, because it covered so many states, and also the Caribbean. They also said we can expect more like it. No doubt this system is nearing its end.

It's a storm, they happen, it doesn't mean the end of the world. You just hear more about it because it is in our country. I cant believe you are so gullible to believe it means this system is nearing its end. For most of the world it's a non event.

Planets come and go. Whole Star systems come and go. In fact there are two galaxies that we can observe that are currently colliding. Beginnings and endings is what the world of form is all about. Nothing is permanent.

Apocalyptic cults prey on the fear of those who cling to primitive concepts of reality such as the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses and their bloodbath theology.

Think about it. In all of recorded history, how many apocalyptic cults have sprung up, made their prophecies, failed, and faded into history?

And how many have succeeded?

Obviously none. We're still here!

In fact the problem of apocalyptic cults was prevalent even when Jesus walked the earth as evidenced by the warning he gave in the scripture at Luke 21:8 :

"He said: "Look out that YOU are not misled; for many will come on the basis of my name, saying,'I am he,' and,'The due time has approached.' Do not go after them."

We are all going to die! Death is a part of the organic process we call life.

What Jesus was trying to teach humanity is that the fleshly realm is not our home! We are created in GOD'S image. The most significant quality of GOD is persistence. And it is this persistence of consciousness that GOD shares with us, and it is this persistence of consciousness that is the unconditional LOVE that is the foundation of our being.

As the human race in our quest for knowledge we are slowly beginning to recognize that what we considered to be reality is an illusion of projection of a greater reality. In itself this universe that many consider reality has no substance.

This has been put forth by mystics such as the historical Jesus for centuries but not understandable by those who did not share the mystical experience.

Today we find science slowly confirming the reality of the OMNIPRESENT GOD that Jesus called LOVE that is the reality of our being. WE all exist in GOD as stated in Acts 17:28 (New International Version,©2010)

"28 For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, "We are his offspring"

GOD is ONE. We are all one with GOD just as Jesus said in Luke 17:21 :

"21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."

You are already in GOD"S KINGDOM! Everyone is! There is nowhere else to go!

As it is stated in Deuteronomy 6:4 (New International Version,©2010)

"4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one."

What is needed is simply waking up to this reality and casting off the delusion that this world of form is real! It has no more reality than a picture on a television screen!

As Jesus said in Matthew 6:19 :

"19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

If we practice the two most important commandments in the bible in our day to day life, eventually we will find that only heaven is real and we are already there! We just need to wake up!

This is stated in Ephesians 5:13-14 New International Version (NIV):

"13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.

14 This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”

That's all we have to do, simply wake up to who and what we already are!

GOD is LOVE. WE are ALL ONE WITH GOD, even the unloving!

You may have to take a trip at a moment's notice, so don't let the unexpected jangle your nerves. Look at the day as an adventure, and welcome unexpected twists and turns. The Twins have been far too predictable lately and could use a change of pace, anyway. Those of you who end up staying planted in terra firma could find yourself on a journey of the mind, as philosophical debate turns into an intellectual adventure!

your theology lacks justice.... god is love..... no one is going to be left behind without a fair chance and choice to manifest.... that is what the 2 ressurrection is all about.

no,... god is not going to destroy billions of people who have ever lived, just because they were raised by ignorant parents controlled by demons..... no, there is no everlasting reincarnation where they keep being born until they get it right.

eventually the end of this system will arrive as mankind is backed into a corner by his own demise.... then jesus will show up with the cure.
the showdown between muslims and israel is on the way.... i don't promote living in fear of the end, but still, eventually it will come....... jerusalem will be trampled on until the appointed times come to an end, as the anti christ forms a necessary one world peace machine to save everyone, including the ecological system...

GRANDPASMURF 952: Apocalyptic cults prey on the fear of those who cling to primitive concepts of reality such as the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses and their bloodbath theology.

Think about it. In all of recorded history, how many apocalyptic cults have sprung up, made their prophecies, failed, and faded into history?

HAPPIER:
It reminds me of Harold Camping and and his doomsday cult. He predicted a specific date for the end of the world, but somehow he was wrong every time. His followers believed him, even when he had been wrong before. Doomsday predictions are very useful to create a sense of urgency to your message, and people are motivated by fear.

The WTBTS is no different than Harold Camping. They made predictions that don't cone true and use fear to motivate. Most of the Faux Jos on here talk far more about the great tribulation than they do about their hope for a paradise hope, because that is what the Watchtower does. They know most people are risk adverse and are more motivated by the fear of dying at Armageddon then they are motivated by the hope of the paradise earth fairy tale.

Once you have brainwashed people to fear Armaggedon, every disaster, flood, war or other event reinforces that fear. Most Jehovah's Witnesses focus on these negative things because it confirms their belief that things are really bad and are getting worse. It is called confirmation bias. The bad events confirm their belief in the doomsday message of the organization. Anything that indicates that things aren't really so bad is dismissed because it doesn't fit their preconceived notions.

Their really is no evidence that the world is going to end anytime soon, but try telling that to a JW. When I converted in 1979, we were all convinced that this world was going to end very soon. It just seemed this system could go on for even a few more years. It was "stay alive till 75". Unfortunately when that prediction did not come true, I did not wise up and leave. The WTBTS pretended they never predicted a date, and I believed them. I was no smarter than the Harold Camping faction. At least he admitted he was wrong, the Watchtower has never done that.

how ever you base your belief on "the end of days" your family needs RAPTURE CARE. RAPTURE CARE provides for their needs when you are suddenly not there. It pays the basic monthly needs and healthcare cost you will want to make sure they have. RAPTURE CARE is offered by Joseph Isaacs of Palm Harbor Fl.

The anti-Christ was a 1st century figure. To be precise it was Titus, a Roman, who besieged the Jewish nation in 67 to 70AD, the 3.5 year tribulation.

Lol...so when did the 3.5 years of peace and safety occur?

How silly to think the Roman empire would be inclined to make a peace treaty with a nation that was under their occupation.

Duh...occupation and peace are not synonyms.

Please start thinking.
