Also Revelation keeps talking about the combination "Heaven and land and sea". If Christ is understood to come from heaven, then the fact that his opponents come from land and sea completes that trio again.
Our heart is the sum of our egoistic desires, and the small point within it is part of the spiritual, altruistic desire implanted from Above by the Creator Himself. It is our task to nurture this embryo of a spiritual desire to such an extent that it (and not our egoistic nature) will determine all of our aspirations. At the same time, the egoistic desire of the heart will surrender, contract, wither, and diminish.
After being born in our world, one is obliged to change his heart from egoistic to altruistic, while living in this world. This is the purpose of his life, the reason behind his appearance in this world, and it is the goal of all creation. A complete replacement of egoistic desires with altruistic ones is called “the End of Correction.” Every individual and all of humanity must attain it in this world together. Until one achieves this, he will continue to be born into this world.
I had this thought spooking in my head and thought ATS sure knows more than I about what is written in the bible.

Just a thought - but wouldn't a Christian website know more about the Bible than ATS? Seems unlikely that you'll find balanced Christian discussion, debate & exposition regarding Christian doctrine or Judaic interpretations of the Law & Prophets, Psalms & Proverbs, etc (the Old Testament part of the Bible).
