Re: Revelation – Where we are in the stream of time​

Where then is the place as a resting place for me? , (Isa 66:1) In post 112 above I said: Haggai's prophecy is not about a tem...

Re: Why did Adam Choose to die?

Re: The Spiritual Kingdom: How to Understand the Book of Revelation

This post is not for debate, but to present a spiritual interpretation of how to understand the Book of Revelation, from the 1800s. So much has happened since the author died, and yet his words are as true today as they were 150 years ago! As x-JWs, we were totally uneducated about what the Christi...

Go up to the mountain and you must bring in lumber and build the house that I might take pleasure in. Note mountain is singular. https://i.ibb.co/nPQXzkR/Mounta...
