MommaJenny raises a good question. How have some of you come to the conclusion that the majority of things discussed in Revelation have already occurred in the 1st century? For instance, Dani, and others, believes that the scripture talking about the number of the beast was fulfilled in Nero, I believe it was, rather than yet to be fulfilled in a future "Anti-Christ" who has yet to lead a New World Order. On what basis do you believe Nero was this individual? How did Nero bring about a "mark" in the hands and foreheads of people, forcing all to accept this "mark" in order to be "able to buy and sell?"
