I'm not sure who has said that if everyone believed correctly that it would all go away. I for sure haven't said that. I've said that it was a race to the finish and the Scriptures indicate to me where we should be at when Christ returns. I'm after those goals, that according to Revelation 19 obviously overthrow the beast's system. My focus isn't even on any kind of "tribulation" time period. My world view has been, okay, whatever happens with that, we've also got an agenda laid out before us in the promises of God of every nation being discipled before Jesus returns. So, I'm about the will of my Father and am believing for my portion of Jesus' ministry in the earth, up to and including the obscene amounts of money that I'm spoiling the strong man of in order to get everything that God's laid out before me of my 1Thessalonians 3:8-13 calling fulfilled.
I don't care if the Antichrist is raised from the dead during the so-called tribulation as long as I've already done all of the dying that I'm going to do and am doing what Father wants from me in my part of the drama of the ages. My world view doesn't discount what could totally and completely go to hell over the next 50 years, but I personally don't see any of this mess stretching either anywhere near that long or beyond that long. I'm focused on generations with my Postmillenial view and the creation of heritage and legacy rather than focusing upon whether or not Islam takes a third of the world's heads off, whether there's an actual microchip in everybody's head in the middle east as the world community finally decides that they're all too crazy over there to not lojack, or whatever.
I genuinely don't care about those intermediate details. Perhaps I haven't been clear enough about that. I personally don't envision the world getting as far gone as the premillenialists and amillenialists are expecting. I don't believe the left behind scenario after having gone back and scrutinized every single Scripture in it's context that anyone anywhere has ever tried to say teaches that. I see the Body of Christ going forth and taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ Jesus. Obviously, I'm seeing that there's going to be quite a few of those thoughts to take captive before we have totally taken the upper hand. Nobody that's all scared of NWO is really looking beyond 25 years when you think about it. My thoughts of world dominance on the part of the Body of Christ are in terms of speaking millenially. I don't believe it'll take either the whole of this next millenium or even the whole of this next century to see the Gospel totally in charge of every single heart everywhere on the planet.
But let sin abound however far it's going to abound, and God's grace is going to just that much more abound far beyond that! That's what I'm saying.
