maybe since the events of the H Bomb Test, or…?

I picked up a few End of Days biblical pamphlets recently at a Thrift store.  As these things go, you can point randomly and find wacky amusement.  I am particularly amused by reading his tangential “If you must call me a religious fanatic, go ahead, but one day when you’re looking up from Hell I’ll be the one laughing” — in so many words.    I am somewhat saddened by the idea that the author of these things — Larry D Harper — took his considerable skill set on this phantom task, the opportunity costs strike me as out of whack, but to each their own.

A lot of water has flowed under the proverbial bridge since the booklet came off the press nearly eleven years ago, but nothing much has changed in regard to my understanding of the things the Early Church Fathers Irenaeus and Hippolytus recorded more than 1,800 years ago.  If anything, since the events of 9/11/01, their statements concerning the Antichrist have come into even clearer focus.

This is rather puzzling a statement, and I begin to suspect that “the events of 9/11/01″ might as well read “since BAD STUFF HAPPENED”.  I am reminded that at the time ,the Trinity Broadcast Network put in images of 9/11 for the promotion of their end of days drama (already being promoted before 9/10.)

To be sure, the AntiChrist does things like this:

The AntiChrist will be a Jew, and will achieve his stated objectives by being accepted as the Christ, the messianic king of the Jews, taking his seat in the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, pretending to be God Himself, and thereby becoming the “abomination of desolation” spoken of by the prophet Daniel and mentioned also by Jesus.

The AntiChrist, during his reign, will deceive the majority of the people living on Earth at the time into believing he is God.  However, he will persecute those who refuse to worship him because they are able to see through his delusion.

Here’s the problem.  I don’t see how the events of 9/11 have brought this closer to happening.  Yet, he does.  It seems like a logical fallacy or something.

The front page of today’s Oregonian presents something about a big rush for Survival Seeds in the wake of current natural disasters.  May be time for a big Fallout Shelter Craze.
