    • I hadn't put my own words into the post.  All I did was post scripture.  
    • What I like to do is pray each night before I go to bed and ask God's forgiveness for any sins I may have committed?  You know how in the Lord's prayer, we are told, "Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us?"  I actually follow what the Lord said.  If I am aware of something I did wrong, I confess it outright.   The thing is, as I have said numerous times before, sins done without our knowledge are under the blood.  The sins that are not under the blood are those that are pre-meditated (willful or presumptuous).  That means that we are not faced with having to worry about forgetting to repent of something.  We know when we choose to sin.  We don't need a lucky last second repentance unless we go around choosing to commit sins all the time.  The better way is to shun the wrong and do the right.  If you are faced with a choice to commit adultery or not to commit adultery, don't commit adultery.  If you are faced with a choice to steal or not to steal, don't steal.  If you are faced with bearing false witness or not bearing false witness, don't bear false witness.  Then you need never worry about having to have a last second repentance.  
    • Greetings! This is an interesting topic. Horrifying and fascinating. From prophetic words we are going to see  an inanimate object filled with life. That's beyond modern experience. But it's not a robot. And it's not a single idol. Isaiah 2 19 People will flee to caves in the rocks and to holes in the ground from the fearful presence of the Lord and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth. 20 In that day people will throw away to the moles and bats their idols of silver and idols of gold, which they made to worship. 21 They will flee to caverns in the rocks and to the overhanging crags from the fearful presence of the Lord and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth. 22 Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem? A day of the Lord passage, exactly like Rev 6 and the 6th seal. But the important point is the people are throwing the idols of precious metals away. Notice, "...people will throw...their idols...which they made". Everybody has one. A personal image to a false god.  Not a single image, not a robot. Rev 13 tells us the beast from the land will have the power to give life to the image of the beast, after he causes the people to make an image to the beast. This 'life' given to the image is 'spirit', so it's the spirit of life probably much like the life that's in everything. A robot does not have 'spirit'. A robot imitates 'spirit' through clever programming. But it's still just 1's and 0's and algorithms, not 'spirit'. Everyone cannot build a single image to the beast, "to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast". I heard this was the interpretation of this verse; that all the people would build a single giant image of the beast. Not everyone could have a hand in that. Then, how could that single image cause all who do not worship the image to be killed? From afar? By itself? The image doesn't kill, it causes the death of those who refuse to worship the image. It speaks and likely incites those who do worship the image to kill those who do not. So it's not telepathy. That means the image would be in proximity to those who do not worship the beast. That fits with Isaiah 2 and the personal icons they throw away when the Lord rises. Rev 9 speaks to the same personal individual icons made by their own hands. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:  These icons to the beast are made from all materials and are the works of the hands of individual persons. There might be all the materials listed in a robot, but robots are not made entirely of any of the materials in Rev 9:20. But you see it's mankind here, in a singular sense. They 'repented not'; repentance is an individual act, as is the the 'works of their hands' in this case.  So it's going to be hand made icons, by each person, and each icon given life by the false prophet, with the ability to speak and cause the death of those who refuse to worship the beast. I know this is truly shocking. Not even Outer Limits or Twilight Zone came up with something this horrifyingly terroristic. 
    • Oh, that is really funny....thanks so much!  Needed that laugh... My heart goes out to any animal or child/person that is suffering.   I don't enjoy hearing the sad or awful cat stories either.    I've witnessed or heard of too many awful stories already in my life. Let's be kind to these homeless cats....and to anyone needing our kindness. Btw, spaying and neutering are essential.   Most cities and even towns offer free spaying/neutering now.   If not totally free, then very low cost.  The TNR...trap, neuter, release programs work very well to keep cat populations stable for those that feed strays. If you remove stray cats, others will simply take their place.   But a neutered colony remains the same as other cats won't move into the territory.  Then sometimes some of them get adopted or eventually pass on...that is what I experienced with a neutered colony.
