Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
referring, of course to Jesus. but the point of this verse is that we are presently in an "evil" world.
the order of our present world is not a good one - and when we get to the next world, the new world, this one we are now living in can rightly be
called the "Old World Order."
and we know that there will be a new heaven and a new earth, from what is written in Revelation. there will be a New World and so it's arrangement
does fit the label New World Order.
all the speculation of the so-called ruling elite taking over and ruining our world by having their way, with impunity, doesn't really make sense
from the point of view of the bible.
presently, we are dire straits - the greed of those in charge has caused an environmental disaster of what might prove to be truly biblical
but what does Revelation say about that?
the ancient of days is going to bring about the destruction of those who destroy the earth!
And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward
unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the
who is destroying the earth?
well, in a way we all are but not all of us willingly.
many who see what is going on as the true abomination that it is, are currently powerless to correct the way things are going.
those who don't care about the world and those who live in it that aren't their own are the ones making the decisions.
and their decisions are destroying the earth.
they love and make lies, it seems, from what we are discovering.
they are causing an abomination.
an abomination of desolation, to be sure!
the thing about ruling with a rod of iron has to do with the iron core of the Earth and it's polarity - the potential for renewable perfect energy
lies in the emerging knowledge of electromagnetic forces inherent in our material world.
in order to cease the senseless destruction of our world, there must be an alternative energy source, which of course we all realize.
this is going to be provided, according to the bible.
and Revelation states:
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
this sounds dismal, at least to me, but i am given hope with another verse in Revelation:
And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her
fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
(Revelation 22:1-2 )
we will not lose our precious water - it will evidently be restored as a crystal clear (pure) river of life...whatever that means, it sure sounds
666 refers to the atomic signature of the element carbon - there are 6 electrons, 6 neutrons, and 6 protons in an atom of carbon.
man is a carbon based (organic chemistry) life form - 70% water just like the Earth is made of 70% water.
perhaps there will be a change in our physical chemistry to make another element the basis of life - this change may require a new relationship with
water...i don't know.
i suspect that the new element might be silicon or lithium, but that's just my own theories.
