God came to earth in the form of a man to call out His followers, betroth His bride, and find the world guilty.
The god of this world would mobilize a resistance to the coming judgment, and this would be allowed for a season.
After the founding of the church, there's not much left to talk about, so the end-game kicks off.
The generation of the apostles would see the end of God's intentions for this earth and the transition to the resistance. Nothing new or progressive or original would come after them. Nothing else to talk about. Just the long slog through the final act. Like a two-minute warning in football that turns into an hour due to all the fits and starts. The game is over for all intents and purposes, but they've got time outs to burn.
Each cycle of an antichrist prototype follows the same pattern: some nation/group falls away from God, there's a time of terror, an antichrist "messiah" figure rises to save them, the leader becomes a narcissist who persecutes the church, and warfare is required to beat the man back.
With each new cycle, the falling away is worse, the narcissist is worse, the persecution is worse, and the eventual wrath from God is worse.
These cycles are like 2nd and 3rd downs at the end of a football game after the two minute warning.
Lucifer finally comes up with a play that gives him the whole world.
The church is driven to the 1 yard line trying to prevent a loss. The Lord intervenes.
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
That is interesting. My theory is that everything that will ever take place has already happened in the mind of God, and we are living it out somewhere between the "in the beginning," and the last words in Revelation. God already know all that everyone will ever do, but we do not. We just keep guessing how far away we are from the end, and keep missing it.
