Atheism's Final Fight

 

Over the decades many of us have attempted to figure out the Book of Revelation.  Some claim great success in this endeavour, but I question that.  I've done the research and understand the various prophetic scenarios.  I've written, rewritten, and written again, a verse by verse commentary on Revelation.  I have a verse by verse audio commentary on YouTube, and have taught two courses on this prophetic book.  I have my prophetic leanings, but they're just leanings.  I'm not overly dogmatic, and am reluctant to hold down to one fixed position.  That being said, I think I can safely say, if anything can be safely said from Revelation, that before it's all over, atheism will acknowledge the presence of God that it claimed never existed.  Revelation 19:19 reads: 

 

"Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army."

 

The context of Revelation 19:19 tells me that the rider on the white horse is Jesus, who the nations have the audacity to think they can defeat in battle.  At this point, humanity knows exactly who it is fighting.  It's Jesus, the Son of the God that humanity said never existed.  Any lingering remnant of atheism would, thus, become a memory of the misguided.           

 

How can humanity be so arrogantly foolish, thinking a fight with God is winnable?  This reminds me of 2 Peter 2:12, as quoted from the Christian Standard Bible. 

 

"But these people, like irrational  animals  ​  ​creatures of instinct born to be caught and destroyed  ​  ​slander what they do not understand, and in their destruction they too will be destroyed."

 

Peter's intolerance of the false teachers of his day who rejected the divinity of Jesus is seen in him calling them "irrational animals, creatures of instinct."  These heretics had exchanged any rational capabilities they might have possessed for irrational, animal-like instincts.  They were like humanity at the end of this age, who like a frightened fox, fearfully, frantically, and instinctively, attempt to defend itself from a God it finally admits exists.  Like the heretics in Peter's day that were born only to be caught and destroyed, so an irrational humanity will be caught and destroyed at atheism's final fight.
