Re: Does 666 Spell Rockefeller?

Yeah - How did you get that his Headquaters will be in Rome from all that. Also I don't think we need to worry as Christians about who the anti-christ is. If he does not come on the clouds of heaven then he is the beast. Silvertusk. Perhaps you are right and it just doesn't really matter much. I ha...

Re: Does 666 Spell Rockefeller?

I'm game. But I'm new, so how do we play and what's the rules?
I mean, what is our subject, who is the teacher and where do we begin?
The topic here is 666 which can only be found in Revelation 13. Would that be a good chapter to chose?

Re: Does 666 Spell Rockefeller?

Carpentersson & Grizz, I think if we continue discussing like this we will just be going around in circles. I'm talking about Rome, Carpentersson is digital and Grizz is bewildered by it all. Perhaps the best thing to do is to take up a verse-by-verse study of a particular chapter of Revelation tog...

Re: Does 666 Spell Rockefeller?

Every instance of the word "He" or "She" does not always mean a man, human being, true? And would you apply a literal meaning to these verses? It seems to me that you really want to force a meaning into 666 and anything we say will not convince you. You want to believe that 666 refers to the web......

Re: Does 666 Spell Rockefeller?

I didn't say that Rome will be Antichrist's headquarters; This is what I said: I did not mean to imply you said that. I realize that you were quoting from The Popular Encyclopedia of Bible Prophecy. My apologies. I don't see how Rome fits in with some of the other statements made in Rev, but I don'...

Re: Does 666 Spell Rockefeller?

I agree with Grizz that the Antichrist will be a man because a literal reading & understanding of the Bible would suggest nothing else. In The Popular Encyclopedia of Bible Prophecy , under the topic Antichrist, there are 10 clues to the Man of Sin's identity: 1. He will rise to power in the last d...

Re: Does 666 Spell Rockefeller?

The beast from the abyss (the sea) is the anti-Christ. The beast from the earth is the false prophet. I believe they are both men, spirit men, they would have to be to do the things they are going to do. The Dragon is Satan. Thus the three make up the un-holy trinity in direct opppostion to the Holy...

Re: Does the forum believe in the rapture??

Gman and RickD You guys are thinkers. :clap: The big question for me that evolves from this one is: What then can we do to prepare for the time of tribulation? I would be interested to see the response from the other thinkers in the forum, but I don't know how to start such a question. Yes... My be...

Re: Carnivorous animals before the fall...

I personally think death was always in God's plan, that the garden was indeed affected by natural laws, (unless Adam and eve were in zero gravity :ebiggrin: ) If there was no death, then that is certainly troubling, because in time to come, animals reproducing but not dying would create a shift in ...

Re: Does 666 Spell Rockefeller?

I do not agree that the beast out of the sea is necessarily a person. I don't insist it is not a man either. I'm just saying one interpretation makes a lot more sense than the other. I have searched the bible and read mountains of commentaries and still can't find any scripture which proves the firs...

Re: Carnivorous animals before the fall...

Again, the age old confusion between the physical and the spiritual meanings. "You will surely die ." What kind of death, physical or spiritual or both? What actual physical tree has fruit that gives any knowledge? And what kind of life is meant by the "tree of life"...physical/temporal life or spir...

Re: Does 666 Spell Rockefeller?

Awesome! Revelation amazes me, I'm still rereading it and still don't understand some of it. Only God knows the future and the fact that He can accurately tell us about it blows my mind! I can therefore see that nothing in the universe surprises God, nothing is an accident...the smallest particle in...

Re: Carnivorous animals before the fall...

Perhaps you're right, since Genesis does not directly say if God meant that His creation was "very good" in a physical sense or "very good" in a spiritual sense or both. But I can't help but ask why our Lord mentions 5 times in Genesis how He observed that the creation was so "good"? He had a good r...
