this isn't a short post as it is impossible to outline any other way than as briefly as possible. Apologies in advance
People do not want to believe in God. They declare the Bible a work of fiction and God is a fairy tale. They wonder why God made the Bible so
difficult to understand with all its seemingly contradictive naratives.
There is a reason God gave us His "living" word and a reason it is ambiguous in understanding. To understand scriptures that have a multiplicity of
meaning is a work of interpretation by the reader.
Why? Casting pearls before swine rubs all who don't comprehend the message the wrong way. Why isn't it straight forward then so all can come to know
God and His message? Why did God leave us to learn on our own after the garden of Eden?
Most think God abandoned us and in that limited view of the nature of God can't comprehend that it was man that had left God and chose to follow the
forbidden fruit of knowledge rather than adhere to the loving guidance that God originally intended for His creation.
So lets look at what man had benefitted from the knowledge. We were given all the occult practices that elevated false teachings by fallen angels.
(Not that the power of the occult isn't a reality, but the occult pracitces defile your spirit. (Pay heed to where you live inside your heart.)
"What is man that thou arte mindful of him? There is animosity betwwen man and the fallen ones and the goal was to destroy craeation not enlighten
us. We were given knowledge of weaponry, money (breeding greed), biological and chemical destruction, nuclear poisons, lusts of the flesh as well as
the mind and that is merely the tip of the iceberg of our fall from Grace.
Man was blessed with a brain that adapts to needs. Necessity is the mother of invention. A bullet hasn't been made that wasn't intended to kill. Man
was left without divine guidance until God saw a maturity and what was needed was an example that brought morality. To our shame the sacrifice of
Jesus upon the cross is still, two thousand plus years later still not understood... even denied since many think it was a tale and not based in
What happened way back then to make us start counting days then? What is God waiting for? If it were as simple as waiting until all who would come to
Him would, and those who won't never will, that line could have been drawn at anytime throughout history.
There is a single event that God awaits and many intuitively feel that this era is the time of fulfillment. The book of Revelation gives us insight
into that event and yet man still translates scriptures according to what is understood by the times we live in. How easy it was to fool us all.
Divide and conquer and we are still being conquered.
The book of Revelation begins with 7 candlesticks ( 7 churches) 7 stars (the spirits of the 7 angels of the 7 churches in Heaven where Christ holds
them -Rev 2:1 ) and actually begins Revelation with the 7 letters to the 7 churches. This is a key point to keep in mind.
There is literally so much to comprehend meaning from the Bible that it would be impossible to detail in a few paragraphs just like it is difficult to
relate all creation within a single volume of written words. Hence the multiplicity of meanings.
Evolution vs creation is a moot point brought forth by those seeking to disprove creation and it is a moot point because nature can't define the
super-natural. Whether creation took 6 days (and one for rest) is meaningless since the sun - our method of measuring time - wasn't created on the
first day. (but the fourth day) Our measure of time isn't the same scale related to us by God in Genesis. God said "replenish" (Genesis 1:28) the
Earth which means to repopulate not begin populating. There is ample evidence of prior civilizations and God Himself alludes to populations existing
by stating "there were giants in those days" and yet God didn't create the giants - at least not God our creator, and not during the creation of
"Let us make man in "our" (Gen 1:26) image said it all. The angels were here first and paradise is alluring to any/all.
Again, without going through the entire historical record (of which Adam and Eve is only a single geneological record and doesn't relate offspring of
the fallen) what is important is the "end" by which God tells us of "from the beginning."
Interpretations by man leaves a void and multiple tanslations. Language being but a single barrier so again, why would God make it all so confusing?
The time for understanding wasn't ripe. History is always written by the victor and evil has been winnning since the beginning because of "our"
shortcomings' not of any malevolence on the part of God.
So lets skip the intervening period and instead just dive into what is relevant to our particular time, namely, the book of Revelation and
particularly Rev 13:18.
Many have sought the solution to the riddle and yet it really was Occam's razor all along.
"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred
threescore [and] six. "
Notice that the first "S" is capitalized.
While many sought solution in numerology and transliteration of letters to numbers there have been many that fit the numbers. From Caesar to Napolean
to Hitler to Obama to the Pope to Prince Charles and I guess as days go by many more could fit the numerical puzzle and yet here again, it was
Occam's razor all along.
Man has interpreted this passage as "... the number of a "man" and sought along those lines instead of ... the number of "a" man.
The Bible contains all the answers and that first "S" being capitalized designates chapter followed by verse. There is only one book in the Bible
that has more than 66 verses in the 6th chapter, the book of St John.
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life.
John 6:64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray
John 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
John 6:66 From that [time] many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
John 6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
Up until this time there were many disciples who followed the teachings of Christ and they had taken those teachings with them when they left and like
Pearls before Swine, gathered their own followings. This explains why there is anecdotal evidence that Jesus went to India (and other places) had
children etc. His teachings went there but it wasn't from the mouth of Jesus but the memory of what came from the mouth of Jesus... and wasn't the
entire inspired teaching but was what little they understood of the true nature of God.
