And what group is this that is perishing and why? They are the group to which the Creator is not a spiritual concern as yet. They are yet to be awakened.

They may be closed-minded individuals who hibernate within themselves away from the prompts of life and who hesitate to interrupt themselves from self-induced.apathy. They are the ones mostly eliciting low consciousness which is their base for thoughts and actions.

They have thus chosen to endure suffering through the pains of this life as their specific characters are slowly formulated, slowly because they take no or little effort on their own. Once the general collective consciousness improves, thanks to those who do take effort, they will awaken quicker. What kind of effort can accelerate awakening? 

The group that is in a state of perishing are those in ordinary consciousness. They live. They die. And they are mostly closed-minded individuals.(1Corinthians 1:21,23,25; 2:14; 3:19; Acts 17:18,32; 1Corinthians 1:24).having little or no interest in things spiritual. They are perishing because they don't yet have the life of the Son and because of being blinded by their own ego concerns are on the road of perishing which is the way of living of the 'living dead', zombified:.John 5:37-40; 10:10; 20:31.

Proverbs 3:31 "Envy not the oppressor.(original Hebrew: 'a man of violence and/or unjust gain').and choose none of his ways.".The last thing on an oppressor's mind is life after death:.Job 15:20 "The wicked man travails with pain all his days and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor."

Mostly concerned are they of low consciousness with day to day opiates:.Isaiah 56:12 "Come you, say they, I will fetch wine and we will fill ourselves with strong drink and tomorrow shall be as this day and much more abundant."

The Creator looks after oppressors:.Psalms 72:4.
   Oppression of others occurs because what one sees that he wants is eagerly desired and so means are considered to take it. Lawyers advising any corporations these days?

Instead of looking to the laws the Infinite One has set up that provide prosperity for all who know how to use them correctly, they lean to their own devised ways:.Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding.".Proverbs 28:16.

Christ in charge:.Isaiah 9:6,7 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom, to order it and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this." 
    Zechariah 14:9 "And the LORD shall be king over all the earth. In that day.("that day".is the day when the entire consciousness of the world is love:.Isaiah 11:9 "...for the Earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.".Our part to get it there?).shall there be one LORD and his name one.".Not one of the associated events of Zechariah chapter 14 occurred at the first coming of Christ. They are set for the second.

The world-shaking events of around 70 A.D.:
 From.What Happened in 70 A.D.?.by Edward E. Stevens
"No other persecution.(including all the Roman ones).ever threatened the existence of Christ's followers like this Jewish one did. Tertullian even said that the Roman persecutions helped the church grow.("seed of the Kingdom", Apologies). Eusebius, Book II, chapter 25 and Book III, chapters 5-8, shows that the Jewish persecution was the real threat. And it was empire wide. There were Jewish communities scattered all over the Roman Empire and Jews who had become Christians on that first Pentecost went back to their communities with the gospel. It didn't take long for the Christians to make their presence and their difference known. A strong persecution immediately ensued. Paul's letters and the book of Acts show this constant struggle going on. It got worse as time progressed. When it became known that Gentiles could be saved without circumcision and Law-keeping and that the temple sacrifices were no longer binding, the Jewish leaders were incensed. They would stop at nothing to put down this new 'blasphemy'.

"All that they stood for was being trampled under foot by the Christians. This was the persecution which ultimately escalated into the 'great tribulation' in which several of the apostles were martyred and exiled. Josephus pinpoints its beginning in 63 A.D. when Festus died and Ananus II was installed as high priest. The Jews were without a Roman governor for three months. Ananus II took advantage of this opportunity to arrest James and some of his companions.".It was during this three and a half year 'great tribulation'.(c. 63-66 A.D.).that James, Paul and Peter suffered martyrdom and apostle John was exiled to the island of Patmos, where he wrote the book of Revelation. According to Peter who wrote at this very time, Satan had been released and was 'prowling about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour':.1Peter 5:8. Peter knew that his martyrdom was imminent and now.(2Peter 1:14).the tribulation was underway.
   "This 'tribulation' fell first on the Christians.(1Peter 4:17).and immediately provoked Christ to descend with His angels in 66 A.D. to begin the outpouring of wrath and judgment upon the Jewish nation for three and a half years.(66-70 A.D.). In the opening chapter of Revelation, John says:."I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance which are in Emmanuel, was on the island called Patmos, because of the word of God and the testimony of Emmanuel".

"In Matthew 24:22 Emmanuel says that unless that 'tribulation' was stopped, none of the 'elect' would have been left to tell the story! The destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. put a stop to this threat. It weakened the Jewish people so much that they couldn't be a threat to the church any longer. They had to concern themselves with their own survival. And, it completely stopped the sacrifices. This was a tremendous help to the Christians. Revelation promised a speedy relief to all this. ....."
