These are the END TIMES. Is this not the propehsy of the Bible. Only way I see it is that if you get some radicals into govn't to force people to take "their mark" sign of the beast or die. It fits well with what is yet to come. Muslims believe that you have to die or take up the religion. Christians believe that you can chose God and Jesus Christ (His son) as savior for our sins or live the life we chose and see our fate in the after life. It is a CHOICE (emphazised) of the will. No one can force you to chose a religion. If you look over the many centuries you will find that Christians and Jews have been persecuted for all time. WHY? Just ponder the thoughts. Doesn't matter what destruction they claim to do. Doesn't change the facts that God is who He is and what will happen will happen as God has promised. Inevitably we will all die at somepoint. It's about time we start thinking about what we believe in.
