The Apocalypse--Some Practical Considerations for Worldwide Domination

The following is a public service announcement from the Trumpet magazine.

With the Bavarian Benedict able “to win over and rally all the world’s
Catholics” and a rising political twin [Stoiber] who will likely lead Germany
and even Europe, it appears Europe’s future as a resurrection of the Holy Roman
Empire is coming very close to fruition.

The PCG's 2010 deadline for the end of the age places some near-term prophesies on the horizon. Yet, with less than 5 years to go, their articles are still laden with qualifications like "will likely lead". I am not a general, but I am thinking that it takes at least a few years to get an army ready for world domination. It takes things like trained soldiers, munitions, vehicles, planes, boats, nuclear weapsons and a public information campaign to name a few. The PCG's rhetoric must change to reflect confidence in their prophet--no more likes, maybes, or possiblys.

Germany is in fact spending on its military. For example, "The German Navy is seeking parliamentary approval for a contract for four Type F 125 surface combatants in the first half of 2006 and for the new warships to be commissioned at two-year intervals starting from 2012." This quote is taken from www.Janes.com.

Nothing seems to indicate the kind of spending and ramp-up required for an Apocalypse, beginning in a few short years. Another article outlining the stretched German military is located on the following site, www.cdi.org/terrorism/germanreforms.cfm.

Some proponents of prophecy might point to the fact that the Beast power will be a combined force not just a single nation. However, doesn't it seem strange that the leader of such a massive effort is not super-capable in the final hour before battle?

Then there's the captivity part. Ever add up the total number of persons in "Israelite" countries? Try it some day if you are bored. If you are a future universe leader, you should have these numbers ready for the press conference. We're talking hundreds of millions of people here. Taking a round number like 500 million, even if 90% of them are left dead, that's still 50 million that must be carried off to the gulag. All of that requires ships for US (30 million), Canadian (3 million)and Australian (2 million) victims, and those walking from Sweden (800,000) will clog the roadways.

I checked the Carnival Cruises web site, and their largest ships hold around 3000 people. Given that the evil taskmasters will cram their captives in like sardines, let's up the capacity to 6000 people per ship. That's 5000 boatloads of captives from the US that must make a cross-Atlantic voyage. It was hard to determine the speed for an Atlantic crossing but one estimate puts it at 80 hours (http://www.bluebird-electric.net/the_blue_ribband.htm). That's 400,000 hours total travel time, 16,666 2/3 days. Hey there are a lot of 666s in there, maybe I'm on to something after all. That totals over 45 years.

I won't continue this farsical exercise, but you can see from these crude numbers that to get everyone to the gulag before the trumpets start sounding, and to give the Laodiceans some repentance time, it would take about 30 top notch cruise ships going 24/7 for 730 days to transport 41,096 people per day at seven boats per day carrying 6000 people each. That number is probably not realistic given maintanance and other timing issues, and weather.

The raw numbers from this little exercise almost seem plausible, but they do not consider transit time from destoryed cities and rural areas, the manpower required to escort these captives and other resource issues. We saw recently the catastrophic results of Hurricane Katrina and the manpower required to handle a city of about 1 million. Can you imagine transporting 30 million people after a nuclear holocaust has destroyed infrastructure, and made the country radioactive in may areas?

Doesn't seem realistic when you look at the big picture.

This has been a small rainy afternoon exercise. The point behind it all was to think through just one of the many claims made by Prophets and Apostles. Such thinking and questioning is discouraged in many congregations resulting in accusations of disloyalty or demon-possession.

"Just believe", they say, "the Bible tells me so."

Dear Mr/Mrs Asbestos

Re: Farsical Exercise/Top-Notch Cruise Ships

You obviously don’t know much about world history or for that matter much about shipping and transport logistics. Don’t you remember WWII and how the Nazis transported the Jews to the camps? Apparently the Germans were very good at it. Unfortunately they tended not to use luxury ocean liners.

Ever seen a fully-laden container ship? They are quite an impressive sight, I imagine they are even more impressive with about 5000-6000 American refugees on board. There are literally thousands of such vessels on the ocean at any given time. For example, in a 20’ shipping container you could fit roughly 25 people with enough food and water onboard for the two week journey quite easily. Some of the larger container ships can take around 200-300 of these containers.

Currently Rotterdam port processes thousands of these cargo vessels weekly. Do the maths. With an East Coast USA to Europe transit time of approximately two weeks. I would conservatively estimate that around 5 million people per fortnight could be moved from the East Coast of the USA to Europe quite easily.

But then what would I know? I am just a timid little PCG member waiting to be liberated by the insight and wisdom of some sneering web blogger who spouts their opinionated drivel whilst bravely hiding behind the anonymity of the internet.

Kind Regards
Adolf Eichmann

Now, now is that any way for a future universe leader to address an uneducated upstart? I will not attempt to defend my educational qualifications, however I recall that the Germans did the majority of their people movements using rail throughout Europe. In my rant I noted that after a nuclear holocaust the main transporation lines will surely be either destroyed or severly damaged, including the ports which are located at major cities. Maybe there are enough ships and containers in the world to do the job, it's a hard number to calculate. However, they need infrastructure to do the job. I stand behind my conclusions.
I will not bother to address your knowledge of world affairs, history, technical matters, and future events. As a member of God's Royal Family I am sure you have the bases covered and feel quite comfortable.

Just a bunch of Bible illiterates! Nowhere does the Bible says Germany as 7th head of the Roman Empire and the Roman Empire for that matter is the 4th beast. Stop looking for a new or modern-day Hitler coming to power and domination in Europe. It is not a modern-day Hitler who is coming. Read again your Daniel 9 to 11. All those nations to rise have been mentioned, not a single statement nor a single word about Rome. No wonder, HWA and all those of his cohorts have been falsely prophecying. HWA and his cohorts are basing their prophetic beliefs on Greek philsophical interpretation of the Scriptures. The Beast is rising but all of these modern-day presumptuous-to-know-the-truth (HWA and his blind followers) are looking elsewhere. No Germany nor modern day Hitler is ever going to rise as The Beast simply because the Bible doesn't say so. Read again your Bible and you will know which country to look for and which type of personality to rise again.
