This happens after a fairly nasty period of either being peppered by asteroids or nuclear bombs or both etc. it descends in order to save a large portion of humanity…
All sorts of shit happens before that point such as mechanical locusts (possibly weaponised quadcopters) and the resurrection of an ancient demi-god called Apollyon…
I’ve gone into some depth with some of these topics before, but if you arm yourself with the knowledge of today it is quite easy to interpret what is going on.
The Earth is laid bare after a period of rule by some thing… some sort of augmented or transhuman. All of our ancient myths talk of titans, demi-gods and so on, the children of the gods (descended angels, who do their own will).
Of course the Book of Enoch describes the damage these things did to the Earth, and the upset of the natural balance and the desolation. And it talks of how God, through the good angels, put things right through the flood. At this point he saved Noah.
So, the end of times will mimic these times to a degree, a demi-god set up on the throne where it should not be. The abomination of desolation? The Earth destroyed again, this time through fire, and the saving of humans (this time hopefully more than just one man and his family). Noah’s line was limited to 120 years after the flood, this time the opposite will happen… all of the limits of disease and age will be removed.
It seems to me we will be destroyed by technology, and also saved by it, although the technology we are saved by will be beyond our comprehension. A space ship 1000 kilometers as wide as it is long and upgraded bodies that never die! WHAAAT!
Where do we go from there?
