Re: Three little known (by Christians) facts about the Bible and Revelation
Bible Fact 1: The New Testament has been written and re-written many times over, and nobody knows what the original content is.


Incorrect, the King james version in particular has been copied many times but accurately so, not changed. Just because lots of copies were made does not mean they changed the content of it. It has been protected from being altered and accurately translated carefully. You have no idea what you are talking about.

Bible Fact 2: Many meanings explained in the book of Revelation are the author's own perspective on what he believes the visions mean, using standard human filtration.


The authors were told by god what to write and were witnesses to gods work. It wasn't a guessing game. Again you have no idea what you are saying because the author of the bible was god. That's a fact. If you say otherwise you are calling god a liar. And I would tremble in fear to call god a liar. And if you were not foolish you would also.

Bible Fact 3: The person who wrote Revelation clearly believed the vision was related to things happening in modern day, and some references are not part of the vision at all.

The revelation is the prophecy for gods people to be able to rely on. It cannot be understand by the profane or unbelievers.

Thank you. I appreciate you helping me with providing feedback. I am considering re-writing the whole thing or just scrapping it for awhile and doing something new, from the feedback I mostly get.

However you are the only person on the GLP board that has any feedback which has interested me so far, so I appreciate you helping me with this.

...
Daniel tells us, this person comes to power through aggression between powerful western forces, and the Middle East... aggression that weakens these western powers, and gives way for the East to rise to greater heights and leading into the precursor of what becomes the "10 Nation Empire" of Revelations.

Re: Three little known (by Christians) facts about the Bible and Revelation
If you can't stand the heat, you shouldn't be playing with the fire. As a so-called student of Kaballah, your ignorance is really showing.

There are many of us CHRISTians who are very aware of your so-called "facts". Satan has been attacking the foundations of Christianity for millennia. Some very well-versed people over the years have actually put together material that had "some" merit to it. I see no merit at all on that website. I have studied Kabballah for decades and see NOTHING that disputes what science is now beginning to take seriously or take it so seriously that they don't want to upset their own applecart. The "FACT" is that modern science is now admitting that their experiments are showing them that "effect" can actually happen before "cause". The "fact" that light is now seen as capable of traveling of MULTIPLES of light speed--therefore showing that the "Standard Model" can no longer stand as "fact". The ONE major "fact" that disproved the possibility of a 6000 year-old earth was the "fact" of the limiting factor of light speed at 186,282 miles per second in a vacuum. Modern experiments now show that light CAN and DOES travel faster than ever imagined. The "facts" PROVING that the earth is billions of years old is now relegated to the dustbins of ignorance and has joined the "legions" of former scientists of old who have been proved wrong, time and time again.

I could go on for hours showing just how ignorant (not stupid) your proposals are. Your "facts" are all wrong or misguided. In "fact", I will even go a step further and state without any qualms whatsoever that if there is, indeed, a so-called "hall of records", it is contained within the Scriptures themselves--right out in the open. I am a SCIENCE FREAK and have been since early childhood and find that Scripture has the finest SCIENCE that the world has ever seen. Kabballah does not even scratch the surface--as must as I enjoyed studying it and discussing it on many forums--including the time travel institute science forum. When the Bible said that the earth (by inference) is only 6000 or so years old, instead of trying to DISPROVE that, I sought to PROVE it. Science has done a far better job of it than I ever could.

As far as coming to this forum is somehow a bad choice to teach the "natives" your wonderful truth of antichristian dogma, may I remind you that you are on a CONSPIRACY forum which has far more enemies to "religion" than it does those who might even agree with you. "Marginalizing" the "natives' because they don't see your "brilliance" is hardly the way to prove your own stances.
 Quoting: Zerubbabel


Am I understanding correctly you are saying the Bible is correct in it's statement that the earth is less than 6,000 years old, and that science has proven this.

Also you stated I am making ridiculous claims. Did you have some kind evidence to cite the validity of your claim which "science has done a far better job of" proving than you?

I am very interested on how a clearly educated person like yourself is going to back up this claim... with science. :-)

Also, Kabbalah has dibs on the big bang theory. They wrote it about two millennium ago, so I don't understand why you seem to consider the Kabbalah to not be scientific, but that the bible is.

I personally do not see this documentation as anti-christian or satanic. I believe that if people do their own research on this document and Christianity then they can learn truth.

After all, if the blind lead the blind, then you all fall into a pit together, right? And since my information is accurate, whereas you are claiming the earth is less than 6,000 years old and that this is proven by science...

I guess maybe people have some things to learn about their own history.

I had a college sophmore reading and reading comprehension level in 5th grade, and likely have read more books in a year than most so called scholars read in their life.

Yet you, the great wise one, have something to say I have never heard of... That science has proven better than you can, that the earth is less than 6,000 years old.

I'm looking forward to your explanation of how the earth is less than 6,000 years old. :-)
 Quoting: Loki's Magus


I won't do the research for you but you can look up Double-slit experiments, quantum entanglement, "spooky action at a distance" (spoken by Einstein), and see what has turned science on its head. Most modern-day scientists refuse to even go there because it is just too "spooky". None of their theories hold at the quantum level. They are realizing that just simple OBSERVATION can change the properties of things (such as a particle changing into a wave by observing it--even at macroscopic distances. Science hasn't PROVEN that the earth is 6000 years old. It is showing that it is POSSIBLE where it was once IMPOSSIBLE by their reasoning. If you have the time, watch the video that was presented to you which is by Dr. Walter Veith. Dr. Veith is a former geneticist with impeccable educational background. He has shown that the entire structure of today's "science" is build on false reasoning and that the "theory of evolution" is a theory that even modern scientists cannot prove--especially with DNA and Mitochondrial DNA evidence available. The theories involving the "geologic column" which argues for an old earth is pure rubbish. He shows this quite clearly and shows how science has put all of its eggs in one basket and that basket is now a basketcase.

You're basing conclusions on faulty conclusions. I have read just as many (if not more) books than you. I exhausted all the encyclopedias by the time I was in Junior High School and have several college degrees--for what they are worth. I could go on and on about accomplishments, but what does that prove? The fact is, you have built your house on sand. It is sinking even as we speak. You recognize intelligence--that is a good thing. Now use YOUR intelligence to seek the truth of the matter. God is real. His Son, Jesus Christ is real. The Holy Spirit is VERY real. The prophecies are true and real. The times we are in are VERY REAL--even to the unbeliever. Everything is exactly as Scripture fortells. Trying to disprove some of the Scripture is like trying to cut out pieces of your heart. You may still function, but you are a walking deadman. All of your heart is necessary as is all of your head. You can't pick and choose what is real. If you rely on your own intelligence and ability, you will surely fail.
The TRUTH is stranger than FICTION.

Re: Three little known (by Christians) facts about the Bible and Revelation
Point 1: Yup, but I feel that much of the content from the Gospels are pretty close, at least. (This might be "faith" on my part, but hey ... I already toss out most of Paul's letters as nothing more than a historical commentary ... I don't really want to toss out the entire Brit Chadasha because without it, there's not much I can learn about Yahushua)

Point 2: Yup, few seem to grasp this even though it really is quite obvious when read in context (both literal and historical)

Point 3: Not real clear on your meaning of "modern times", our modern times or the authors?

Your posting, IN MY OPINION (for the onlookers), has said nothing blasphemous and I'm not real sure why so many are taking such offense over it.

Sadly, I tried to read the link you provided, but once you get to the second table (where I presume the content should be) it gave me a 404. I would like to pick the data apart, do some translations and check this stuff out for myself and my own edification, but it seems that the content is missing.

I would like to venture a "fact 4" for the list here, though, if I may: Revelation is almost impossible to fully understand without also understanding the prophecies of Daniel. If Revelation were the butter, Daniel would be the bread.
 Quoting: Sir Phydeau


I would love to hear more about correlations between Daniel and Revelation. If you have a link or book recommend I would appreciate this.

Also, do not worry about the mysterious fact that everyone has an opinion on this document or the fact that they assume numerous things about me, the author, the website, and also the motivations behind writing the document, all of which are wrong. Nor worry about the fact none of these people will read the entire document before forming an opinion.

They are slaves of Anu. It is not their fault. They are the victims. This problem is being resolved external to things done on the Internet, and they will be free to pursue the true teachings of Jesus with the rest of the world in time...

The website gets hacked a lot by these annoying Anonymous people who think their interpretations of Jesus give them a right to censor the Internet. Try again later, or hit refresh for better results.

Re: Three little known (by Christians) facts about the Bible and Revelation
Loki ... if I might offer some advice from my own experience here.

I have many interpretations within my belief system that are well off the beaten path. Heh, I'm a Hebraic roots, Torah observant, universalistic, non-Trinitarian Messanic Simeonite.

Wow, what a mouthful. :D

Pretty much the only thing I find that I am in agreement with modern Christianity is that, "Yahushua is the Son of the Father", while not even agreeing with the names thrown around.

So, yeah ... I've had just about every religious insult you can imagine thrown at me.

Anyway, to the advice; I've learned to make it a habit to include a LOT of qualifying statements like, "These are just the foundation of MY belief system, I do not profess to have all the answers nor telling anyone that their interpretations are incorrect. Nor do I expect nor demand that anyone agree with me."

Recently, I've even gone so far as to start my religious postings with something like "DISCLAIMER: The following posting does not necessarily represent the opinions of the Father. READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED!"

This seems to keep the trolls and insults to a minimum and helps to create a discussion that is conducive to allowing us to come reason together without strife.

It's been a very long road for me to get to this point and I still miss the mark often. But it certainly helps.

Perhaps like a fool. That is one interpretation. However not everyone who studies scripture sees the modern Christian Bible as an "all or nothing" thing. Not all books in your Bible are necessarily accurate, nor is what you consider the "current" Bible what all people consider the current Bible.

This is all explained in the documentation. One does not have to subscribe to modern Christian beliefs in conformity to your modern canon to believe in concepts or truths present within your scripture.

All scripture is god breathed (not god written.) Rhema is not Logos. Rhema is eternal. Logos is not.

I guess it's all greek to most people, but I don't necessarily subscribe to your belief on what the true teachings of Jesus and/or Jesus's disciples were just because your friends do.

This seems to keep the trolls and insults to a minimum and helps to create a discussion that is conducive to allowing us to come reason together without strife.

It's been a very long road for me to get to this point and I still miss the mark often. But it certainly helps.

I am not Loki, I am Loki's Magus. People sometimes seem to have difficulty understanding this for some reason... Don't know why.

However thank you for the advice. It is most helpful.

I merely called you that as a short form ... much like some might call me "Phy" or "Sir P" or whatever.

Just saving myself a few keystrokes and being lazy. :)

I see. Like I said, I am likely scrapping the whole thing and replacing it with something better, so your feedback on how to style a message on the GLP board has been helpful to me as it can be transitioned into a document as well, albeit with a slightly different style.

Everyone's feedback tells me something, but you have been kind enough to throw in some advice, and I appreciate that.

And I wasn't upset about being called Loki or anything. I was just pointing this out in case you didn't know, and now I know you did, so that's that.
