Withstand in the evil day. Eph 6:13
Maybe but I am not 100% sold on that being the initial/primary catalyst for the OWG to form (it could be though). My problem is where it could potentially interfere with Rev 6:5 black horse which brings economic collapse and scarcity. However I thought this would be caused by the Rev 6:3 red horse/war.I can think of only one. The fall of the US as the holder of the reserve currency, or, just the absolute fall of the US.
If you are like me, you would have thought the world markets/USD would have collapsed a long time ago. What is holding it back from collapse? Hmm.
The "rapture cause" theory also takes care of this big problem below that Andy mentions:
I agree/'concur' hehe. I could imagine the system "getting started" which it most definitely has been in the works for a long time. However, like you Andy, I cannot imagine the beast system simultaneously being able to exist alongside the Church/Holy Spirit on earth.A “beast/OWG” system can not coexist with the church. Many nations throughout history including some current countries have heavily persecuted Jews and Christians, but a world system that wants to annihilate both Jews and Christians, being formed while the Holy Spirit/church is still here? Really????
How much of the current OWG planning is just human sinful effort/pride/rebellion being used and enticed by Satan himself? We have no way of knowing how much/little but it is an interesting question to ponder.
