I pose a question to those more educated on the topic.

I heard once before, that in the end times, the book of knowledge will be opened, or we'll find the key to the book of knowledge and open it...Unsure of the exact quote, but it's generally along those lines. I did some quick searching using keywords and dug up nothing. So I pose to you all, to first I guess inform me if indeed this quote exists, or if it's a twisted version of another quote from revelations.

Personally, never read the bible in full, or any other religious material for that matter. Although I have vague understandings of most religions. Obviously I understand more-so the prevalent religions.

Laying in bed last night I had this thought, which involves the theory of the law of attraction(or similar too) & revelations.

It seems mankind has been on a quest for technology, and knowledge, and it's arriving faster than ever.

By racing to become more advanced in this field, are we bringing ourselves closer to the end days (if indeed is a reality)

Any, and all input is welcome, so as long as it is beneficial to this post. Otherwise save yourself, and others the time!

I have my own reservations, but am still very open to any and all possibilities.

p.s. If I've posted in wrong category, please close or move topic. Thanks mods/admins.

Im wondering? Since you admit you havent read those books and studied those can you formulate an educated opinion on things you haven't yet read or MAKE that "lying in bed" opinion?

You really CAN'T. Its just guessing. Do the work 1st and then discuss....

Book of knowledge is from Daniel 12:4

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.

It continues

And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

Just a thought ... book of knowledge could be the internet

Law of attraction is basicly from Genesis

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Law of attraction has been always, and when we are happy with our lives God is happy too.

I think it is talking about the book itself . . Daniel, and may have something to do with why people think it was written at a very late date, that it disappeared, then surfaced when the prophecies were being fulfilled, which of course to us is in the ancient past.

I formulated a question for those that better understand the writings, and are familiar with the writings of said religion.

And for those who have alternative views of how the universe ticks, I'm open to peoples opinion because it is the sort of thing I 'study' in my day to day life. Sometimes it's good to get that second set of eyes and brain to give a person another approach to given problem/question.

I've read parts of the book, and found it confusing for the most part... How can you expect anyone to study a book written in riddles, parables, symbolisms and hidden meanings that's been translated, revised, etc, and then make sense of it all? Then have an educated opinion, when the material itself is flawed? So you result in a flawed educated opinion, no?

This really isn't an educated opinion, it's more-so a question regarding if anyone dares to share their thoughts about the topic i've presented.

Potentially, the book of knowledge, could be, that we finally, understand ourselves and that is, the final revelation, that brings us, to an end of days, but only in our current realm.

Thank you all for sharing!

Thought provoking comments, I'm going to 'digest' and let the subconscious do it's magic for now....

I'll be back later to discuss further. Again, thank you!

I am very leery of Bible prophecy, simply because I do not believe that all of these books were meant to be taken literally. Just as important as researching the Bible verses themselves is researching just what life was like during those times, and what other texts were describing, if they are available. Certain books may conform to particular literary styles of the period in which they were written. In fact, I would imagine this to be the case.

If you simply read the material and remove any words that denote opinion or emotion you will find that most of the dross falls away from the template hidden within.

The key to understanding one doctrine is to find commonalitys with another,Humans use comparative reasoning.

This is a natural process,so simply read a bible and then read a koran,and look for commonalitys,after that read another doctrine and keep on going.

Go right back in history as far as you can and look for commonalitys in those as well and you will find that these commonalitys are like a reverse-directory taking you straight to the One True History of Humanity which we all share and which is contained within the very fabric of every religon on Earth bar none.

No. Youre expecting others who've read the material to explain it to you. Not all of us can do any better than if you read the same confusing things that at least WE read...instead of doing the work we did.

You don't get thru school asking others to explain things because you don't want to exert the effort. We did. We sometimes are confused too. Why arent you like us? The "I don't want to read this stuff...just explain it to me" is a cop-out.

We'd have a common ground to explain and discuss things...but you couldn't relate because you didn't do the work. That's all. Ive spent 45 years studying stuff...Why should I give it to you? You wont get it anyway, unless you do the work and make the relationships between fact, fiction... history and speculation.

One has to absorb the info...not matter how the MINIMUM at least. Then...with those specifics...we can answer your specific questions and you can begin to relate to them so you CAN understand.

Im convinced by your opening thread and subsequent responses...that you really don't get what Im saying here. And you never will unless you at the material. That's all you have to do....And if you cant.....I see it as you copping out. Then go watch a movie...just don't ask us to explain it to you afterwards.

And your opinions on this are totally irrelevant to the topic. Something you wont study. Staring at the ceiling thinking about things without reading up on them...makes only uneducated, non-researched ideas with no relationship to the material...because you wont/didn't even READ MAKE such opinions with any convictions and validity based on the don't want to read.

There is nothing in the KJV bible that has the words "book of knowledge."
However there are references to a "book of life" which maybe you are referencing.
Philippians - 4:3 = 1 verse + 3 times
Revelation - 3:5, 13:8, 17:8, 20:12, 20,15, 21:27, 22:10 = 7 verses + 35 times.
Don't be discouraged.

I think that it was written that way to obscure the fact that the Beast that Revelation was talking about was the Roman Empire, and the various Caesars.

You couldn't have hardly gotten away with blatantly writing a book that identified everyone in power as the tools of Satan, especially if they actually were the tools of Satan.

I agree with all of your comments. I will be sure to apply this method when researching the various religious books, and other writings of the same era(s). I appreciate you input.


Thank you for asking, and sharing your points. Although I feel as if your getting more offended by this topic than anything. I agree with most of what you say, but the other points...well..

Youre expecting others who've read the material to explain it to you.

1. I expect nothing of this post, or others for that matter.
2. Im unsure where you read that I require explaining, other than about reference to the book of knowledge.
3. I've asked if someone could clarify if indeed there is any material in Revelations that speaks of a book of knowledge. Where i'm thinking book of knowledge(or was told), it seems thus far should actually be the book of life.

The "I don't want to read this stuff...just explain it to me" is a cop-out.

Again, I never said either statement, or implied it for that matter. I'm simply asking others to provide their thoughts on the topic. I've only ever stated the Bible is confusing.

We'd have a common ground to explain and discuss things...but you couldn't relate because you didn't do the work. That's all. Ive spent 45 years studying stuff...Why should I give it to you? You wont get it anyway, unless you do the work and make the relationships between fact, fiction... history and speculation.

I understand what your conveying, I didn't say, here's an idea, go research and get back to me, or did I even imply it. I asked for others opinions on it from people that have read it and understand it better. If I read something I dont understand, I will do my part of research to understand it to the best of my ability.

Quite honestly, arguing whether or not I have grounds to stand on asking the question I ask is pointless indeed.

I'm curious of others' thoughts on this topic. Thats it!

Thank you for the input, whilst seraching I kept seeing the book of life coming up. Kept hitting dead ends searching for the book of knowledge. It could, very well be the one im referencing. I'll do some reading on the info you've provided. I Appreciate it. reply to: Seede


I agree, that it was written in that manner for specific reasons, as for the reasoning, am unsure. Thank you, and I appreciate your input.

Right. Understand that. My only point is better to read every word and not understand, than to ask what its about without reading the material. One can gain much clarity from reading something, not understanding it, and then having it broken down so the words make sense to you. Im just trying to help here!

Maybe you can find relativity with this statement someone once told me: "We are the sum total of all our knowledge. Nothing more. Nothing less." Good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative. It all has value to you in some way.

One of my end-of-life intentions is to completely read and re-read all the great books. There are many....and Ive got a long way to go as well...even when I finish? I'm still gonna need someone to explain all the parts I read that made no sense to ME either!

The whole situation into what it really is: Desire, Reflection, understanding,

A frog hunts on land by vision... He has no fovea or region of greatest acuity in vision, upon which he must centre a part of the image... The frog does not seem to see or, at any rate, is not concerned with the detail of stationary parts of the world around him. He will starve to death surrounded by food if it is not moving. His choice of food is determined only by size and movement. He will leap to capture any object the size of an insect or worm, providing it moves like one. He can be fooled easily not only by a piece of dangled meat but by any moving small object... He does remember a moving thing provided it stays within his field of vision and he is not distracted.[9] Cyberneticist Valentin Turchin points out that the gestalts observed in what we usually imagine are 'still images' and are exactly the kind of 'moving objects' that make the frog's retina respond:
The lowest-level concepts related to visual perception for a human being probably differ little from the concepts of a frog. In any case, the structure of the retina in mammals and in human beings is the same as in amphibians. The phenomenon of distortion of perception of an image stabilized on the retina gives some idea of the concepts of the subsequent levels of the hierarchy. This is a very interesting phenomenon. When a person looks at an immobile object, "fixes" it with his eyes, the eyeballs do not remain absolutely immobile; they make small involuntary movements. As a result the image of the object on the retina is constantly in motion, slowly drifting and jumping back to the point of maximum sensitivity. The image "marks time" in the vicinity of this point.

No, not offended in the least...just addressing someone stating they don't want to read something...its boring and senseless to me and my patience to read explain it please so they don't have to...I was only addressing that attitude...and if you hadn't made statements like that...I wouldn't have even addressed this thread...

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Prov. 4:7

There is wisdom, knowledge and understanding; each differ from the other and together hold truth.
and is explained in Prov. 3:13-20.

Wisdom is referred to as a 'she' to be found: more precious than rubies; and all things desired cannot compare; length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
*** Revelation speaks of the woman with the name "Mystery" sealed on her forehead but is misunderstood,
calling her as the 'whore' of Babylon---not unlike Mary Magdalene has been presented as the prostitute and not a disciple by the church>>> hence, a conspiracy and YES, you have posted in the proper forum.***
and happy is the man that finds wisdom and that gets understanding.
The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens and by his knowledge divided the deeps from the dew of clouds (aka the filament).

A treasure hid in a field, and when a man finds it, for joy, hides it, sells all he has and buys the field. (The kingdom of heaven is like ... would make a great new topic).
Matt 44:14
