I agree wholeheartedly with your theories. For I am a fellow believer in the return of Christ. I have taken into account the many things that you have stated in this Flash. However, Jesus left information of HOW to do this type of preaching work. There's only ONE group who follow all of the Bibles principles and still continue to do this preaching work, even in over 200 lands across the world. The Jehovah's Witnesses. Jesus himself stated, this preaching work will be heard to all the corners of the earth, and then the end will come. We can trust that that part has been accomplished. I do, however, think it's not wise to make a Flash for Newgrounds. These crowds tend to be "less" religious and more rebellious. Remember, a lot of what these people have to say won't be good. And it was Jesus who said that, "they will hate you as they have hated me.." (not an exact quote).
And also, I've been to regular churches and seen what goes on behind closed doors, it's a money industry, you won't even hear them preaching about the end of days because it doesn't matter to them because they might feel it's nothing to be feared or it's not real.
The Kingdom Halls of the Jehovah's Witnesses, and I'm not one, but they are organized and filled with spiritual brothers and sisters who teach these same principles and live their life as a Christian should. No killing. No Politics. Just love amongst their brothers and a keen interest in generating peace.
Your message is well noted though, that the end IS near and whoever tells you otherwise will find out soon enough. Also, just praying to God won't help.
21 "Not everyone saying to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will. [What is God's Will?]
To preach his word [The Bible] and that you come to an "accurate knowledge" of him and his son.
22 Many will say to me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?' 23 And yet then I will confess to them: I never knew YOU! Get away from me, YOU workers of lawlessness.
Keep close to the faith and if anyone reading wants to learn more, I'd be glad to help.
Thank you, and also keep in mind that not all "regular" churches is a money industry, there are many churches out there who use donation money for charity and evangelism, like they should be doing.
Keep this in mind as well; Jehovah's Witnesses DENY the following through their doctrinal teaching:
1.) the Trinity
2.) the deity of Jesus Christ
3.) the personality of the Holy Spirit
4.) the biblical view of the atonement
5.) the bodily resurrection of Christ
6.) salvaltion by faith in Christ alone, and therefore...
7.) salvation outside their orginization.

This should be sufficient to let us realize that Jehovah's Witnesses are NOT Christians and that they do NOT teach the same as Christians do.
I've had a few former Jehovah's Witnesses tell me that it is actually the Jehovah's Witnesses that are a money industry.
Also, it is because the crowds here tend to be less faithful and more rebellious is why I have posted this here in the first place. Yeah of course I may be flamed at, and this flash may probably be blamed someday, but remember Mark 2:17:
"When Jesus heard it, He said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance."
Thank you for your concerns.
