You still don't get it. There are no sides.
Okay, I admit, it was a poor choice of word(s). I should have said "by" instead of "on". It's amazing how just one word said can distort things in such a manner. (Matt 5:18)
Now that's a good word "(disillusioned)", it can be a tricky one had I not looked it up. I can't say that I'm disappointed with them for my life but I will admit to some resentfulness toward them for what they have done to the lives of loved ones and strangers alike.
No I don't Coccus, who or what is America? We all have our own image of it, many around the World call it "the Great Satan", to me it's home for now and it's just a big soup bowl, dog eat dog, who's scamming who type of place like any other.
I always get your Drift, and when the wind gets just right we can sail away and find serenity, "side by side".
Stranger, "standing by"
Now I see that wonderful spirit of truth shining through the clouds. Nice to get to know you Stranger.
Although the forum is a great means of communicating with people wherever they are, words get in the way. What we say makes so much more sense when talking face to face which is the point well made in the video FriendlyDoggo features in The problem of Mark 2:26
Talking about words and getting back on track to 'Revelation - Where we are in the Stream of Time,' Dan 11:44,45. Whilst checking scriptures connecting the mountain of decoration to Mt. Ararat. I discovered something quite unexpected.
Ararat Meaning: unclear, Etymology: unclear.
The word ararat is probably imported from a foreign language and it doesn't really mean anything in Hebrew. But according to Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names, the name Ararat comes from (1) the common Hebrew word הר (har) hill
. I thought how can that be, the languages were not confused until after the flood not before it. So this remains a question mark. But the other thing I found was this.
The Hebrew word for ark
as in Noah's ark, is תֵּבָה 8392. tebah - a box, chest
. And it occurs only 28 times
in the OT, including Ex 2:3,5. Moses was placed into an ark for survival.
And the Hebrew word for the ark
of the covenant the one the Levites carried, (De 31:25), is אָרוֹן 727, aron - a chest, ark
. And it first occurs at Gen 50:26, a total of 202 times
in the OT
Thus we have two completely different Hebrew words, tebah
, that are rendered ark in English, most probably to align it to the Greek Septuagint translation. According to the Apostolic Bible Polyglot, 2006 lexicon which lists all the verses where the Greek word kibotos for ark is used, it also lists the verses where it is used in the NT, namely Mt 24:38; Lk 17:27; Heb 9:4 11:7; 1P 3:20; Rev 11:19.
So let's see which ark is referred to in each of the listed verses. tebah
of Noah's ark; or aron
in which Joseph was buried, the gold-covered box with the two cherubs on top with which we are all familiar. Mt 24:38; Lu 17:27; Heb 11:7; 1Pe 3:20; clearly refer to Noah's tebah/ark. And at Heb 9:4 it clearly refers to the aron/ark in which the tablets and manna and Aaron's budded rod were kept.
That leaves us with the one mentioned at Rev 11:19. This is still a question mark, as this is not seen until after the seventh angel blows his trumpet when the kingdom of the world becomes the kingdom of our Lord and his Anointed. When the twenty-four elders thank God for taking his power to rule
...but the nations become wrathful and your own wrath comes and the time for the dead to be judged to give the reward to your servants and prophets and the holy ones the small and the great. And to bring to ruin those ruining the earth. And the temple sanctuary of God that is in heavens is opened and the ark of his covenant is seen in his temple sanctuary
, (Rev 11:18,19). Now keeping in mind that Revelation is a translation of the Hebrew, which ark is seen in heaven? Teba, Noah's ark, or Aron, the box that housed the ten commandments, the manna and Aaron's budded rod. We will just have to wait and see.
That has little to do with where we are in the stream of time, except we are not there yet. But getting back to the present and what's happening in Ukraine I found the article, link below, of interest, considering what it says at Dan 11:45 concerning the king of the north, and he shall have come all the way
, [perfect conjunctive verb], to his end and no one will be helping him
, [present participle]. It doesn't say he actually engages in a war and is conquered, but that he shall have come all the way to his end
. An odd expression, don't you think? It's as if it has been planned all along. But read the article for yourself Russian Judo Tears the West Apart
March 11, 2022: - The official Russian blacklist of hostile sanctioning nations includes the US, the EU, Canada and, in Asia, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore (the only one from Southeast Asia). Notice how the ‘international community’ keeps shrinking.
Putin has a black belt in Judo and those familiar with the underlying principle of Judo will recognize how he out-sanctions their sanctions.
Russia and China are two of the horns of the 8th beast (Rev 17: 12, 13) that is committed to world peace,(see post 49, here
). The same beast mentioned in the 'Reset' video Marina posted, post 84 above. Yes, it is indeed as if it has been planned all along. The WEF was founded in 1971.
