"RE: Paradigm shift"

Wow Ryen!  I am impressed with this dissertation you presented to us.  The only part that I can say I disagree with is your view that the Gog and Magog War is the same as Armageddon.  I have put together my own study on Ezekiel 38 and 39 and I am thouroughly convinced that Islam has to be judged and taken out of the way in order for the "Mystery Babylon" religion to rise.  Imagine after that awesome war, which I believe to be near the beginning of the Tribulation, if the "aliens" arrive and have answers for everyone of what just took place in recent days and weeks since the rapture.  With Islam and the Church out of the way and aethism no more after the supernatural war of Ezekiel 38, people will be looking for answers.   I do believe that Armageddon is covered in the second half of Ezekiel 39, which you might be interested in checking out.  There are a lot more reasons why I believe the Gog and Magog War occur near the beginning of the Tribulation. You can read about them here:

Hello John and fellow Doves!
I wanted to share with you some notes that I have compiled, which I have been giving out to family, friends, and my local church leadership / body.  In light of our impending gathering together unto the Lord, I feel compelled to warn those who believe and preach pre-tribulation rapture (such as myself), not to be ignorant of Satan's schemes and devices.  Satan knows that the Lord will call the body home soon, and he has been very busy conditioning the world into accepting a delusional lie for an excuse, rather than trusting in Biblical truth.  Please excuse the length of these notes, but I believe all these pieces are necessary in order to fully expose and understande satan's schemes.  I do ask for your patience with my wordiness.
Thanks and God bless!
