You say I didn't read your article beyond the first line, but that is not true. I read it all, several times but I didn't realise that you were
making a joke about 666 being Napoleon Bonaparte. If I missed the joke then I apologise.
In general, people’s names are put forward as 666 because it is possible to allocate numbers to letters and make many names come to 666. But please
tell me one name which not only satisfies the 666 rule but also fits the qualification that “no man can buy or sell without the number 666”
You say Resolution 666 does not fit the bill but it:
1) Has the required number 666 and
2) It satisfies the rather strange condition that without it, (the number) no one can buy or sell.
How much more do you want and what else can you suggest which fits both these criteria?
You say that the whole world is being terrorised by the Beast but it’s not the Beast 666! and it's not the whole world. If you read chapter 13
carefully, there is another Beast (with seven heads) which is causing a lot of trouble. They are not the same Beasts!
Then there are two more completely different beasts, one with “two horns like a lamb but which speaks as a dragon” and the “Image of the
Beast” which is yet another “Resolution” but this time from the other side in the war, The United Arab League. The people who were killed, were
those who would not worship the “image of the beast” not those who refused to worship “the Beast 666.”
We could get into a discussion of why people who would not worship the “Image of the Beast” were killed but we will need a fresh post to deal with
this. I am happy to supply this if anyone is interested.
I agree the Bible does not mention 1948. What it does state, is that the End Times will not commence until Israel is living in its own country. 1948
was the first time they did so since they were taken into captivity in Babylon hundreds of years previously.
Why do you say that two assertions about the End Times are “wearing a bit thin” Either they are possibilities, or they have been completely
disproved. Who says they are “wearing a bit thin” and WHY? What does it even mean – “wearing a bit thin”?
Finally, you say that what I am proposing is a “local” matter, rather than a global one, and you imply that it is therefore too unimportant to be
included in The Book of Revelation.
Please let me enlighten you. The Book of Revelation was written by a Jew for the Jewish people and is only concerned with events involving Israel and
their sworn enemies, the Arab nations surrounding them. The allies of Israel are of necessity included in some of the prophecies, notably the UK and
USA, because they often play a major part in the events prophecied.
There are two classes of people mentioned throughout the book and I don’t want to be accused of racism but the facts are there and any racism is on
the part of the author, not me. The two races are:
1) Those whose “names are written in the Book of Life” ( The Jewish people) and
2) “Those who dwell on the Earth” The Non-Jewish people or Arabs)
If you read carefully, you will see clearly that these names are used consistently throughout the book and are quite clear to whom they refer. Again,
I could write a whole blog on this subject if anyone wants to hear it and show clearly without any shadow of doubt where the two races are first
Finally, on a lighter point, 95 is not my year of birth; I wish it were. It is the number of my house!!
