A New Jerusalem –
A map of Rome showing three gates in each direction and a river running through it. New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven. Just as Jerusalem was the center of the Jewish religion, Rome, the New Jerusalem is the center of the Christian religion.
A Time For Good Will –
A falling away. The signs are there. Pay attention to the signs. Peace is for men of good will. He came not to send peace but a sword. There is a lot of talk about forgiveness, mercy, and obedience. That’s the good news. Check your good will if you want peace. This is a test. Look for beauty. It will inspire you. Not so much with the bad news.
A Book And An Internet
A fisher of men. The laity are called to be His disciples. Fish or cut bait. Don’t waste your talent. You are being called to do what you can and you are what you do. Talk is cheap. Reach out as far as you can. Across the street or around the world. The Light shines in the darkness. Reflect It.
A project preserving the unfinished works of Sir Isaac Newton who was very interested in Daniel and the Apocalypse which is now available on Kindle. Newton felt self bound to communicate it for the benefit of others. Others felt self bound to bring it to you. It is now bound in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle.
A Reason to Live
A meaning for life. A test of wills. Don’t bury your talent. Learn what you can. Teach what you can. You will need help. Ask for it. Seek the truth. You will find it. Knock and it will be open unto you. The Truth will not only set you free, It will make you happy. It will help you pass the final test. We are being tested. You may not find that word in your bible.
A Reason for Prophecy
A search for understanding. Why, Where, Who, When, and What????? The answers should make sense. All the questions must be considered. For the most part we are limited to speculation which should be consistent with what we do know. The first question is Why. Why was the Apocalypse written?
A connection with prophecy. Different interpretations have led to over 60 different English bible translations. They all seem to agree on numbers. They all agree on a thousand years, 666, ten horns, seven heads, and five are fallen. Numbers can be used to connect history with prophecy which is the only way to verify the fulfillment of prophecy.
A suggestion that “the heads are seven successive dynasties” can be found in Sir Isaac Newton’s Daniel and the Apocalypse. The seven dynasties of the Roman Empire are listed here. The ten dynasties of Islam are listed here. Both are a fit with history. The Byzantine Empire started with the fifth dynasty of Rome and ended with the tenth dynasty of Islam.
A Horn of Plenty
A connection to Daniel. The “ten horns” of the fourth beast of Daniel are tied to the second beast of the Apocalypse. The ten dynasties of Islam must be consistent with Daniel as well as with the Apocalypse. They are. They fit. The source, Islamicart, is no longer available but a hard copy of it has been saved.
A Sea of Marmara
A Greek fire on the Sea of Marmara, which was like a sheet of glass is a good fit with “a sea of glass mingled with fire”. Constantinople used Greek fire on the Sea of Marmara against the Islamic attack. The year was 666. Historians will never agree on this date but Gibbon got real close to it.
