    Also, it is helpful to post a link, for those who do wish to read the whole thing.

    Currently there is no Temple for this to occur in. Are you saying the Temple will be rebuilt first?

    I thought you said the Temple did not need to be rebuilt, because Jesus is the temple. Which is it?

    In a manner of speaking, though, that is what G-d is - existing in the past, present and future simultaneously, knows what you will choose. He does not make you choose anything in particular.

    Right. With magic, anything is possible.

    Perhaps we all have parts in a performance. Some of us have predetermined lines to read, others are allowed to ad lib, and still others don't have any role except as members of the audience. The latter have the most free will.

    Revelations wasn't meant to be understood and its useless to try and figure out.

    Its simply an ending God put into the Bible because he needed to add something to it.

    Its cryptic for a reason.

    Its similar to how Genesis is simply the beginning of the Bible.

    God states specifically that no one will know when the end times are yet people think they can figure it out.

    People have been predicting the end times since Jesus first died, every generation believes they see signs no other generation has.

    Revelations is not meant to be a focal point of the Bible, to a Christian it should be irrelevant how it ends, only that we are prepared when it does.

    This is why people can't understand it, it wasn't meant to be the focal point.

    I don't even bother reading it anymore.
