Yes it is. Here I try to address yours.

just a quick question:
if you want to interpret prophecy, why not use the prophecies of daniel, ezekiel and revelation, to clarify, adjust, highlight, or illuminate, said
prophecies? doesn't make sense to leave them out of your deliberations, as they are the original prophecies. for example, what about the prophecy
regarding the woman clothed with the sun,
I did so in many other threads. Ezekiel 1 and Elijah's chariots, Daniel, and Revelation. Particularly for Revelation 12 I have a special thread, pls
click on my profile. For me, this cannot be a past event, this is a future event. What sense of retelling history. And, Mary never fled away ALONE in
the desert, she fled to Egypt TOGETHER with baby Jesus. The baby in the Revelation 12, (a text written some 90-100 years later, at best!) cannot be
the literal image of Jesus who grew up on Earth to 33 y of age. All symbolical interpretations, and there are many written throughout centuries, set
aside the problem that we have to see prophecy fulfilled in order to believe. The preterism is not my favorite approach. It is anti-prophetic so to
speak because denies the prophecy its essence - to see the future. As of today, we haven't seen any "war in heaven" unfolding before our eyes. I
can continue, but it goes out of the current topic of OP. And I alreay discussed it in other threads.
The purpose for me to spend time for these several more posts within OP's main topic, is the intense situation around Ukraine-Russia, on one hand,
and the incorrect, false understanding of Fatima prophecy on the other. Since I talked much about the second one, let me say some words now of the
The Ukrainian army already used nuclear capable missile Tochka (one of the the new generation successors of those old missiles that threatened US
existence during the Cuban crisis). Tochka destroyed only a chemical plant in Donetsk with conventional load.
What if at least one or more nukes have been preserved secretly by someone in Ukraine (not necessarily government) at the time of Ukraine break up
from the Soviet Union and changing its status to non-nuclear country? What if, on the other side, the Donbass rebels somehow get a nuclear device, let
say found in some old bunker of Soviet time? Do you think it is impossible one or both sides in that civil conflict to get nuclear? There were already
threats from some activists on the streets. We have the chance for a first time in history of a nuclear civil war right in the European continent and
within the former Soviet borders. Do you think any such occurrence will pass by unsanctioned by Russia and the other powers? I bet it will start WW3
rather soon. Perhaps only days after. Perhaps someone even want it and hope for such occurrence. Chemical charges (with chlorine) have already been
That is something up-to-date, on the table, and matters more than the endless interpretation what John saw that varies greatly, depending also on the
political side the preacher stands on. So let those in vests tell us clearly what OL told the children AND THE WORLD in 1917. Or we understand it as
we could, right from the battlefield facts. Remember there are no isolated islands on planet earth anymore. It matters for Rome, Paris and Washington
equally or even more than it matters for Donetsk and Moscow. If we try to imagine the possibility of a post-WW3 world, I could imagine survival of
Russians in remote Siberian bunkers. I cannot imagine survival of the Western civilization the way we know it. It will be its end, even if Russia is
destroyed in the process too. Perhaps Malachi comes into the scene too.
I don't know how that fits into the book of Revelation, and in anyway I wouldn't start such discussion here. We never know how soon is soon and
whether Jesus comes tomorrow in case of nuclear war, or doesn't come and let the people kill each other, as in WW1, WW2 and, also Noah's flood. We
just don't know.
