Hmmm? Apparently you think we have a greater adversary than Satan?Greetings, Smaller.
I sometimes have no problems with people spiritualizing the scriptures, but spiritualizing them at the expense of taking the word of God literally in its historical and prophetic context can be a tremendous mistake. Certainly there are those who misinterpret things, but discarding prophecy because of it is kinda like throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It is meant to let Christians know where things are headed, and why it is wise to choose the Lord Jesus Christ and stay close to Him. Dark times are ahead, and despite the many false predictions, the Antichrist is indeed coming. When he gets here, there are going to be a lot of people who will die. The saints need to be prepared for that fact or they could end up departing from the faith, because they were not ready to pay the ultimate price if necessary.
He shall speak pompous words against the Most High,
And wear out the saints of the Most High,
And shall intend to change times and law.
Then the saints shall be given into his hand
For a time and times and half a time. (Daniel 7:25)
Sorry. I'm not about to buy into substitutions of the real enemies with externally visible ones
It's not going to come down as you think, in the external.
Darkness Falls is an internal matter, as is the Day of the Lord, Darkness
Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.
God in Christ will take full recompense upon every enemy. Those enemies are unseen, and we will never "see" Him coming, because the full arrival of God in Christ, is INTERNAL
Remember what Jesus said, essentially, that life will be carrying on, as normal, right up to the finale, and then
The end, THEIR END, the end of the devil and his messengers, will come quickly, violently, like nothing we've ever seen
