The subsequent receding of this acute eschatological state has something to do with the gradual disappearance of the miraculous phenomena of the apostolic age. Christian eschatology is a major branch of study within Christian theology. He is not the God of the dead but of the living.'" Looking at the above "contradictory to the afterlife" scriptures in this light, one might suggest the quotes from Isaiah, Psalms, and Ecclesiastes to mean that those who have chosen not to praise God are "dead," but those who have chosen to praise God have been given eternal life and thus are "living" or "resurrected dead."

Unfortunately, that doesn't help us determine he was referring to something other than the temple that was destroyed in 70 CE since letter was written in the 52-54 CE range. On the assumption of the modified eschatological character of His teaching, Jesus is still a teacher; that is to say. The theological expansion of a literal, physical city into the new people of God (believing Jews and Gentiles) is foreshadowed in God's promise to redeem fallen mankind in Gen. 3:15, before there even were any Jews or a Jewish capital city.

Ahmadinejad and his followers clearly believe that this time is now, and that the terminal struggle has already begun and is indeed well advanced. The hope that is staked on the creator ex nihilo becomes the happiness of the present when it loyally embraces all things in love, abandoning nothing to annihilation but bringing to light how open all things are to the possibilities in which they can live and shall live. Relatively recently scholars in religious studies have begun to apply the concept of eschatology to the teachings about death and immortality in virtually all religions.

In my opinion, and I'll try to be temperate and non-inflammatory in saying this, there is a difference between being hard to understand and hard to accept. Other Christians and theologians, however, have become so obsessed with these events that they have dealt with little else. The decline of the Davidic monarchy emphasized the contrast between what was and what ought to be. Secular critics accuse it of woo-peddling, primarily due to its unprovability using scientific methods, and because of its tendency to draw in the gullible.

Islam/Christianity/Judaism are blended on the Temple Mount, and Antichrist commits the AOD and establishes the true Babylonian religion in Babylon - the worship of Nimrod (Molech) and his wife, (Semiramis) Ishtar. Alister McGrath observes that Ambrose of Milan (c. 339­97) "drew upon the ideas of the Jewish Platonist writer, Philo of Alexandria" in promoting "a Platonic world of ideas and values, rather than a physical or geographical entity."18Ambrose's pupil, Augustine of Hippo, too, was influenced by Platonic thinking.

Many would then die, but those who understand the prophecies shall live in the places of the Hopi people and be safe.

Feel free to correct me, I invite criticism :) P.
