I really don't need to be posting right now - I am SO Brain-dead that I really ought to NOT be allowed on the computer (I've had to void 2 checks today, because I can't think OR type) - but I wanted to get a few more thoughts out there.
Anna - the only thing I have a...problem..with is the Wedding Feast - they are generally *after* the wedding, aren't they? The Bride doesn't descend until after all the Judgements...so.....:sigh: I'm sure I'm missing something so simple it's not funny.
Ali - I tried to read the verses you posted this morning, but was pretty brain-dead and couldn't make heads-or-tails out of it. I *think* the Jerimiah ones concern the reforming of the Nation of Israel...but don't quote me. I'll try again tomorrow (IF I sleep tonight! :lol:)
And.....I think where most of my problems come from is Tim LaHaye. I'll read anything - I read most of the (very stupid and misleading) Left Behind books (Hey, I got invested with some of the characters...was TOTALLY pissed when he killed *everybody* off at the end!) - but I read one (I think it was his "Are we living in the End Times" book (Duh!)...might be wrong) that has me all sorts of confused.
He said that Revelation wasn't 100% prophecy; some of it was Historical. For example, when John sees the star fall to Earth, that's not something happening in the "now", it was historical - John saw the Fall of the Adversary. I..dunno. It makes a sort of sense, but then again it doesn't. IF the rest of the book is prophecy, why would this part ONLY be historical? (Am I even making sense here? I'm so tired...)
As I've said before though - this really doesn't matter, does it? We were promised to be kept out of the Wrath, so.....whether we're here or somewhere else is moot. :grin: And, Anna, you may very well be right as to why we can't get past the Seals...I *hope* you are! :tired grin:
