  1. I'm not disagreeing, I believe both Old and New Testament Saints will be resurrected at the general Rapture / Resurrection. However, many were resurrected with Jesus and apparently showed themselves to family and friends. I've wondered how many, who and why? Any ideas?
  2. I agree. Step out onto any major city highway or street in any major city during rush hour. It doesn't even need to be rush hour or a major city. Can you imagine that kind of bumper to bumper congestion with horses and buggies? Hundreds of millions fly long distances yearly. I too once had a complete set of Funk & Wagnal's. Mom went grocery shopping every two weeks, and if your purchase amount was enough, you got that weeks volume. What kind of knowledge 'has not' exponentially increased in the last few decades? Imagine graphing this knowledge on a chart over the last 4,000 years, and look at the straight up climb in our day.
  3. I do agree with one thing... HIS coming is very close, even at the door.
  4. Here's my thoughts? The definition of what is a human and what is acceptable has changed, and is still changing. There's a push and legislation right now to allow abortion up to the point of delivery. At any stage of development of a child in the womb, they don't want to recognize it as a human being? Big push going on for assisted suicide of the useless and draining elderly too. The world and its morals have drastically changed over the last few decades. It's no secret and even the mainstream liberal news sites cover it from time to time. There's much experimentation going on trying to create 'super humans', able to withstand the rigors of extended space travel, along with creating super soldiers for the battlefield. It's also no secret the worlds scientists and dark programs are experimenting with and creating chimeras; under the guise of health, disease and extending our lives. But we all know such technology is gobbled up by governments and the military first and foremost, to the application of war and control. Any benefits to the public will gradually trickle down for general use. Their is no enforceable standards or regulations among participating governments in this quest, much less rouge nations and radical groups. Based on what is allowed to be released to the public, I'd highly suspect we would all be surprised with what is actually going on and their progress. Boots on the ground in the battlefield, or for control of a nation and peoples; what would be the ultimate weapon in place of an inferior human life? Couple the preceding with a dab of nano technology, a sprinkle of robotics and a splash of AI, and whatcha got?
  5. I agree that most likely there's a stock pile of biological and chemical weapons buried and hidden in Damascus, Syria. They have even used some of them a few times so far according to reports I've read. However, those chemical / biological weapons can't reduce Damascus to a ruinous uninhabitable heap of rubble in one night. In my mind based on scripture, and could be wrong, it sounds to me like a radioactive bomb. As far as "oil was the spoil"... I'm not commenting one way nor another; but imagine what would happen to the United States and it citizens and lifestyles, if the majority of the worlds oil was cut off and we didn't have access to it? To me, that's of National and personal interest.
  6. You hit the nail on the head so to speak. We are not privy to how far we are actually 'advanced' in technology because of DARPA projects and military and intelligence applications. I don't hear anyone disputing that our knowledge (not wisdom) and technology is doubling every 2-3 months. If you want the hair on the back of your neck to stand up, Google search "Sophia" and watch a couple of those artificial intelligence videos. They have surveillance drones disguised and the size of insects. Even Amazon and FedEx has the technology to deliver your package directly to your front door via drone. Daniel 12:4 (KJV) But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. We can plainly see and apply the above verse to the times in which we are living, and I believe it has a further application. I think this also applies to understanding the unfolding of biblical prophecy. Prior to seventy-five years ago, whom could have imagined how Israel would become a nation once again in "one day"? With 20/20 hindsight we see exactly how this occurred with all the events 100 years prior to May 14, 1948. Yes, there is no hiding or off the grid anymore. The government knows where you are just by paying any sort of tax or buying or owning anything. Ever use Google Earth as an example? It's primitive technology released for public use. With the advent of spy satellites, drones, etc., they get closer sharper real time images of anywhere / anytime they desire. Everything and anything from enrolling in school to; visiting a doctor, having any sort of account or license or purchasing anything major (home, renting, automobile, etc.)... What's the one thing you always have to supply? Never before in history has this occurred. We see all the players and alliances in place and lined up for the Ezekiel 38: - 39: (Gog - Magog) Israel invasion, that could occur at any time now. We see Turkey (a NATO nation) drastically changing to radical instead of moderate Islam, once a good friend to Israel but now a hated enemy. We see the 'ecumenical' movement of the Vatican and Pope Francis, all the nonsense he is spewing. Getting all the "Protesters" back under the umbrella of the 'one true church'. Collectively gathering in Rome with every major religion on earth espousing we "all serve the same god" and praying to their god. Yep, we are no doubt living in the terminal generation and witnessing who and how all these prophetic things are coming about in God's plan. Our nation is about 238 years old, I'm 66 years old; in my lifetime I can't comprehend how much our moral standards have declined, to the point of calling evil good, and good evil. Well I've blabbed enough now that everyone should be asleep at their keyboards at this point 😀
  7. That's an interesting point I had questions on myself and dug around a bit. As you know, the Septuagint was completed around 300 B.C and a copy could have been available to anyone with money, lots of money. I wondered from where Jesus and the Apostles quoted O.T. scripture from. With a little study and assumptions, I came to the thought that even a copy of a scroll, much less a copy of the Septuagint would have been financially prohibitive to own a personal copy unless one was wealthy. In Luke 4: 16-20 Jesus was quoting Isiah from a 'book' (KJV) given to Him and not a scroll at the synagogue in Nazareth. It stands to reason the common Jew's learned religion and scripture by listening, reading and memorizing O.T. scripture at their synagogue; Saul being the scholar exception taught by Gamaliel. No doubt the Temple and Jewish synagogues would have had the best copies of all the religious scrolls, books and laws. So, in my opinion, it's possible in many cases where O.T. scripture is quoted after 300 B.C. in the N.T.; and it's not identified as reading from a scroll; it could have been the Septuagint? One thing I still wonder about, and this is just from memory. So much was found at Qumran with the Dead Sea Scrolls; Book of the Giants, Book of Enoch, almost the entire book of Isiah, fragments of every O.T. Book except Esther I believe, etc. Since it is believed these parchments were hidden to be preserved prior to the sacking of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, to my memory nothing pertaining to the Septuagint was saved or found? Perhaps because copies were so wide spread???
  8. Looks like we travel in the same circles... Yeah, I listened to that pod cast some time ago and it was very interesting and informative.
  9. Yeah, we're singing off the same sheet of music 😀 Doing my own research on your above opinion, I came to the same conclusion as you. I never believed it was a homosexual act, or viewing his naked body as others have suggested. Then Ham goes out and brags to Shem and Japheth about his incest. The whole biblical story about Ham, his curse and his descendants Canaan is interesting historically pertaining to Israel, and even in our own modern times.
  10. I'm asking because it's very interesting, and I'm interested in other opinions. Also it shows a great difference in all the translations of the Bible from the original texts. The Septuagint refers to "they" as the 'Watchers". Let me throw out a question I've thought about? The Lord promised to preserve His word, but where and how? To my knowledge, there's only two translations of the Bible that are not copyrighted, the KJV and the Septuagint (could be others but I haven't found any). Would God allow His word to be copyrighted for restriction and profit? It's my understanding to obtain a 'copyright' on a translation of the Bible, it must be at least 15% different to avoid plagiarism issues. Now the math: 15% + 15% + 15% + 15% etc., any bells going off? Not to mention the profit from the best selling book of all time. Just my personal opinions, everyone else's mileage will vary.
  11. You're right about that. Checked just a few for comparison; American Standard Version, World English Bible and Young's translation are totally different renderings. That would also apply to most of all scripture. Makes you wonder what the most accurate interpretation of scripture is doesn't it? We all have our own personal preferences and belief's.
  12. Daniel 4:25 (KJV) That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. [Emphasis mine] It's interesting to note that "they" are not identified. I have my own opinion whom "they" might be. I'm curious to hear your opinions on whom "they" might be. This chapter is so extremely descriptive and detailed, I find it very curious a pronoun is used to identify whom is to accomplish this task?
  13. Hi Marilyn, You maybe very correct. Pertaining to Jacob and Esau I find these contrasts and differences interesting, as compared to today and what typically genetically occurs. Twins, as the name implies, means they share commonalities and genetic makeup normally. So by definition, something was strangely abnormal between these two twins. I find it interesting this occurs in the line of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Jacob being Israel.
  14. Revelation 20:15 (KJV) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. The Lake of Fire is the ultimate eternal destination of those whom reject the Lord after the millennium at the Great White Throne Judgment. I suspect currently there's a holding place (Hell - Hades) that's a temporary prison until judgment day. As I have commented elsewhere and as have others; it's plausible this "Image of the Beast" is a computerized robotic creation with AI. The technology and creation of such a thing is here and already shown (Sophia). Can demon(s) posses anything other than human flesh? They certainly can possess animals, why not artificial intelligence with a body and thinking mind. Should that turn out to be the case, they will also be cast into the LOF. At any rate, evil can be programmed into any computer, or a reasoning, thinking, calculating, learning AI could develop it on its own I would think? We're living in interesting times, witnessing how all these things are shaping up and how the stages are being set.
  15. They have... It just takes time at the speed of light to reach a Galaxy Far Far Away. Based on your location, you didn't expect priority 3 day delivery or overnight did you? 😆
