"and woe to pregnant women and to those with babies...."
"and pray that your flight will not be in winter...."
I saw your response regarding Matthew 24. I didn't include the scriptures, because I wanted to see where you were led. It's interesting that you were led to the protection of the children and I was led to "wars and rumors of wars," "don't be concerned," and to Luke's "do not seek what you will eat or drink and be anxious... seek his kingdom and these things will be yours." You seem to be led to the physical change that must take place and I to the spiritual one. That's not a jab, really, it just makes me curious, why we have come to each other.
well... i suppose it has something to do with the spiritual road i've been down... taking me to the physical change.
did you notice that matthew 24 makes reference to Daniel and the horrible beast? ("When you see the horrible thing....")
one day, i was shown the horrible beast...
when i looked into the mirror.
heheheee... kinda funny to think about... all these years theologians trying to see/find/figure the horrible beast (kinda like losin' your car keys when they are in your hand)
since that time, i've also been shown what 666 means -- 2/3
when the horrible beast cut his deal with devil, the horrible beast was not satisfied with 10%... nor 25%... not even 50/50... the horrible beast insisted on 66.6666666%
you might say the horrible beast is hell-bent on taking 2/3'rds of what we got?
ps in case the mark of the beast is still not clear
1) what is the worst... most horrible beast on earth? is/was it the dino... the great white shark... how about the lion? hmmmm... none seem to stack up to Human?
will not every "being" throughout the entire universe know us as the horrible beast?
2) the horrible beast insisted on 66.6666666%
what is the biggest scar... the hugest piece of graffiti... the largest mark any beast has left on the face of earth?
i'm not sure... but i thought the only mark made by a beast... that can be seen on the moon... is the great wall of china?
did you ever see the mark a forest fire leaves?
imagine what the mark of the horrible beast will look like... from space... when we mark up 66.666666666666% of the planet.
sooo... it is likely any other "being" ... wouldn't any lifeform consider Human the horrible beast
and a beast that has left his mark -- 666
("beings"... like chimps that know sign language... they'd be plenty smart enough to know... hehee)
the horrible beast leavin' his mark on everything... earth... air... people, etc.
what a horrible beast?
"This has always been true (your 666 reference)."
"Oy vey! Who are you waiting for, The Christ or Jesus?"
hmmm... after thinking about this some more... i can see how it might look like i am waiting.
sorry, it is because i am a pea brain... a sloooow thinker.
while i work on this puzzle, you might see a stupid looking guy with his mouth hangin' open.
kinda like a chess game when it's "your move"... and you can not fathom a response
that must be what i look like right now?
but, i'm really not in pain or nuttin'... i just look dumbfounded... cuz i am. i ain't waiting... i'm actually puzzlin' as hard as i can.
i'll tell ya the puzzle i'm workin' on if ya don't just tell me the answer? (cuz i like workin' on puzzles and ain't ready to give up yet.)
the jews may call him the messiah
the born again christians may call it the 2nd coming of jesus
still others may call him the christ
but whatever we call him, all seem to agree... he is suppose to come "save us"
save us from what?
the horrible beast
hmmm... what will he do to the horrible beast?
Then I saw heaven opened and a white horse standing there; and the one sitting on the horse was named "Faithful and True" -- the one who justly punishes and makes war. His eyes were like flames, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on his forehead, and only he knew its meaning. He was clothed with garments dipped in blood, and his title was "The Word of God." The armies of heaven, dressed in finest linen, white and clean, followed him on white horses.
In his mouth he held a sharp sword to strike down the nations; he ruled them with an iron grip; and he trod the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God. On his robe and thigh was written this title: "King of Kings and Lord of Lords."
Then I saw an angel standing in the sunshine, shouting loudly to the birds, "Come! Gather together for the supper of the Great God! Come and eat the flesh of kings, and captains, and great generals; of horses' riders; and of all humanity, both great and small, slave and free.
... and of all humanity? ouch!
sooooo... that's the puzzle. if any "human" thinks the messiah is coming to save his ass, should he really be thinking he's coming to kick his ass?
13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months.
13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a Human(s); and the number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six - - 666.
